Harvard Law School Dean Martha Minow has appointed Michael Fertik ’05, Neil Flanzraich ’68, Anthony Scaramucci ’89 and John Williams ’79 as HLS’s Experts-in-Residence (EIRs) for the 2012-2013 academic year, in partnership with the University-wide Harvard Innovation Lab (i-Lab). Williams served as HLS’s inaugural EIR in 2011-2012 and has been reappointed to a second term.

“This year, when we at HLS launch the Public Service Venture Fund and offer new workshops and many courses on entrepreneurship, it is just terrific that these four extremely talented and remarkably accomplished individuals will join us over the course of the year as our Experts-in-Residence,” Minow said.

The Law School’s EIR program invites entrepreneurs, venture capitalists, lawyers and other experts to the HLS campus and to the i-Lab in Allston to mentor and advise students from the law school and the broader Harvard community on entrepreneurship, innovation and career options.

In addition to mentoring students, EIRs also present workshops and other events, share their expertise as speakers in classes taught in the i-Lab, and facilitate interactions between students and startups and social entrepreneurs.

All matriculated, degree-seeking Harvard students are invited to sign up for office hours with the experts by emailing Kate Range at krange@harvard.edu.
