Bank of America Institute for Women’s Entrepreneurship at Cornell:

The Bank of America Institute for Women’s Entrepreneurship at Cornell is an online learning portal that provides women entrepreneurs with the skills, knowledge and resources to build and manage a successful business. Developed in collaboration with Bank of America, the Institute will offer an innovative online entrepreneurship curriculum, connect women with critical information and resources to overcome persistent challenges, including access to networks and capital, and foster a vibrant network of empowered women entrepreneurs and social innovators. The new institute will be a collaboration that draws on the expertise of faculty from Cornell Law School, Cornell Dyson School, Cornell Tech, Entrepreneurship at Cornell and eCornell, among others. Women entrepreneurs can apply for the online program, which will be offered at no cost.

Clinical Projects:

The Center faculty, staff and students work with judges, legal professionals, governmental and nongovernmental organizations and key stakeholders on selected in-depth projects that work toward improving access to justice, economic opportunity and social progress for women and girls. A project may involve conducting fact-finding and writing a report, evaluating laws related to access to justice for victims of gender-based violence, or developing training materials. Projects typically begin in January or August and are undertaken by teams of law students supervised by Cornell Law School faculty.
