Congratulations to Reinvent Law at Michigan State

August 28th, 2012

The Reinvent Law Laboratories, founded by my good friends Dan Katz and Renee Knacke, just received a $150,000 grant from the Kauffman Foundation.

Michigan State University College of Law received a $150,000 grant from the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation to support ReInvent Law, a law laboratory devoted to technology, innovation, and entrepreneurship. The Kauffman Foundation is the world’s largest foundation dedicated to advancing entrepreneurship.

ReInvent Law aims to tackle the significant problem of ineffective delivery of legal services within the American legal profession. The project will cultivate innovative partnerships among MSU Law and other university departments, industry, nonprofit organizations, and government agencies; address access-to-justice issues and create new legal service delivery models through research and experimentation; and equip law students to use creative approaches in their future practice.

Congratulations to Dan and Renee! I will be speaking at MSU in November, and can’t wait to check out their awesome new lab.
