THE University of Portsmouth is launching an intellectual property clinic so budding entrepreneurs can receive free advice from law students.

It has been made possible by a £30,000 prize to senior law lecturer Joe Sekhon.

He said: ‘This funding will provide the university’s growing student entrepreneur community with the very best in advice and guidance on how to utilise the UK’s IP laws to potentially transform their start-ups into the high-growth, job creating ventures of tomorrow.’
