CLINICAL ASSISTANT PROFESSOR, LAW SCHOOL
FOUNDING MEMBER, ZELL ENTREPRENEURSHIP AND LAW PROGRAM (ZEAL)
Bio: Bryce Pilz has been involved in entrepreneurial activities on campus since joining UM in 2006. As Assistant and then Associate General Counsel he worked closely with the Office of Technology Transfer. He also became heavily involved in working with faculty on structuring their courses to fairly address student and third party intellectual property issues. Through that work with faculty, Pilz began to educate and mentor students on intellectual property and startup legal issues. In November 2011, he joined the Law School as one of the founding faculty members of the Entrepreneurship Clinic in the Zell Entrepreneurship and Law Program (“ZEAL”). In that role he educates law students on intellectual property and corporate law issues and supervise those student attorneys in representing student startup ventures. Part of ZEAL’s mission is to better integrate the law school with the variety of entrepreneurial activities on campus.
