During the second week of September, Northwestern Pritzker School of Law faculty and the Office of Inclusion & Engagement hosted its first-ever Northwestern Law Racial Justice Virtual Teach-In.
MSL Student Perspectives
After studying engineering at Northwestern University, Laurelle Banta (MSL ’17) wanted to learn more about intellectual property and how to protect the ideas she was coming up with in the lab. She didn’t know she was also about to become an entrepreneur. As an MSL student, Laurelle took the NUvention Energy course, met a team of entrepreneurially-minded people, and founded NUMix Materials, a company focused on taking heavy metals out of water. As her company continues to grow, Laurelle says, “There’s not a day that goes by where the MSL program has not been useful.”
