The Zell Entrepreneurship and Law (ZEAL) Program and the deep resources of Michigan Law offer students an array of courses that cover entrepreneurship, private equity, venture finance, and business at every stage of activity, from pre-start-up through growth, acquisition, and public offerings. The Law School offers basic business courses and a two-day business principles course for students who have a minimal or no background in business. Michigan Law also offers advanced courses for students who want to develop expertise in areas such as venture capital, private equity, turnarounds, real-estate entrepreneurship, intellectual property, and investment banking.

Michigan Law students can graduate with knowledge of the law and the business behind the entrepreneurial activities that play a large role in the economy and that will play a large role in the careers of many of the Law School's graduates.
