Berkeley students oppose FDA blood ban

The University of California,
Berkeley's student government,
the ASUC Senate, unanimously
passed a bill last week that oppos-
es the Food and Drug Adminis-
tration's lifetime ban on blood
donations from gay men, The
Daily Californian reported.
Caitlin Quinn, a student-gov-
ernment representative, said she
opposed the regulation while
addressing the assembly in their
weekly meeting.
"After talking to some com-
munity members, I figured as the
queer-endorsed Senator I should
take a stand against this institu-
tionalized form of homophobia,"
Quinn said in an e-mail to The
Daily Californian.

College Democrats campaign
in Virginia over Fall Break

Entrepreneurship clinic
helps students innovate

Volunteers canvass
for McAuliffe,
educate community
By KRISTEN FEDOR
For the Daily
Friday, members of the Uni-
versity's chapter of College
Democrats traveled to Virginia
during Fall Break to work on
gubernatorial candidate Terry
McAuliffe's campaign.
Campaign trips over the
short break are a tradition for
the group. For 2012, members
of the College Democrats trav-
eled to volunteer for President
Barack Obama's reelection
campaign in Akron, Ohio.
LSA senior Sonja Karnovsky,
treasurer for the College Dem-
ocrats, said it's important for
members, to see how political
organizing works outside of
greater Ann Arbor.

"Our campaign work is about
finding candidates we can get
behind and help them out in
any way we can - to make sure
that Democrats win across
Washtenaw County, the state of
Michigan and the entire U.S.,"
Karnovsky said.
After a failed bid for the
Democratic nomination in
Virginia's 2009 gubernato-
rial election, McAuliffe is now
the Democratic nominee for
the 2013 race against Republi-
can candidate Ken Cuccinelli.
According to averages by Real
Clear Politics, McAuliffe is
polling seven points ahead of
Cuccinelli.
In the past, McAuliffe served
as the national finance chair-
man of both former President
Bill Clinton's 1996 campaign
and as chairman of former Sec-
retary of State Hillary Clinton's
2008 campaign for the Demo-
cratic presidential nomination.
McAuliffe was also the chair-

man of the Democratic Nation-
al Convention in 2000 and
served as its chairman from
2001 to 2005.
Volunteers from the Uni-
versity were based in Henrico
County, Virginia, just outside
of Richmond. They spent the
weekend canvassing, knocking
on doors of Democratic voters,
making sure they knew when
Election Day was and voting-
site locations.
LSA junior Mary Bridget
Lee, communications direc-
tor of the College Democrats,
spoke of the buzzing atmo-
sphere.
"People knew about the cam-
paign, and they were excited to
vote," she said.
LSA junior Meg Scribner,
chair of the College Democrats,
also elaborated upon the notion
that cross-country travel is
vital to the mission of the orga-
nization.
Scribner attributed the
excitement around the Virginia
ubernatorial contest to the
idespread national attention-
hat it has garnered in an off-
ear election.
As a swing state, the results
from Virginia can often shift
momentum in one party's favor,
looking toward future presi-
dential elections as well.
"If a Democrat wins the gov-
ernor seat, then it is going to be
much more on the Democrats'
side in 2016," Scribner said.

Law School offers
legal guidance to
student innovators
By ALLANA AKHTAR
DailyStaffReporter
The University is a hotbed for
innovation.
A co-founder of Google, the
inventor of the iPod and the
former CEO of Skype are all
University alums. Plus, the Uni-
versity's Office of Tech Trans-
fer said last week that a record
number of inventions - 421 -
were born at the University in
the past fiscal year.
And, in 'an effort to reach
out to promising undergradu-
ates, the University launched
its Master of Entrepreneurship
Joint Degree, sponsored by the
College of Engineering, the
Ross School of Business and the
Office of Technology Transfer.
But University students, who
continue to share business ideas
and develop projects, may be
unaware that there are numer-
ous resources on campus to help
them navigate the often-con-
fusing legalities that come with
starting a company.
The Law School's Entrepre-
neurship Clinic, part of the Zell
Entrepreneurship and Law Pro-
gram - also known as ZEAL -
was created in January 2012 to

offer legal guidance to Univer-
sity student entrepreneurs. So
far, the clinic has already repre-
sented over 30 clients.
Common legal concerns of
startups include forming a par-
ticular type of company, intel-
lectual property issues and
finance documentation.
The clinic was the brainchild
of University alum Samuel Zell
- ZEAL's namesake and a major
University donor - and Evan
Caminker, dean emeritus of the
Law School.
"Michigan is a very entrepre-
neurial campus," ZEAL Direc-
tor Erik Gordon said. "We have
students from every college,
undergrads, graduates, who are
constantly coming up with new
businesses - and they need
help."
For example, Gordon
explained that students who
start working together on busi-
nesses are usually unaware of
the legal liabilities of their part-
nership. He said it's important
that students seek legal help so
they understand what they're
getting into.
The clinic also provides
opportunities for Law stu-
dents to develop relationships
with other students who could
become their post-graduation
clients.
Law Prof. Dana Thompson,
director of the clinic, said the
clinic allows students to go

beyond the walls of the Law
school and become immersed
in the "entrepreneurial ecosys-
tem" on campus.
"It's a great opportunity for
student venturers who are at
the Engineering School or Busi-
ness School or other schools
to really see the importance
of addressing legal issues as
they're setting up their com-
pany," she said.
Along with the Law School
Clinic, the Schools of Engi-
neering and Business also have
entrepreneurial clinics set up in
their respective colleges to pro-
vide support services to current
student entrepreneurs.
The clinic it also holds work-
shops at MPowered programs
and the TechArb for general
legal information and is cur-
rently developing educational
materials.
Thompson encourages stu-
dent entrepreneurs to attend
office hours, which are "open
to anybody on campus who's
an entrepreneur in figuring out
a particular answer to a legal
question they may have and we
also provide general informa-
tion about that legal topic."
Office hours are held Fridays
from 12 p.m. to 1 p.m. at the Cen-
ter for Entrepreneurship locat-
ed in the Duderstadt Center and
2 p.m. to 3 p.m. at the Zell Lurie
Institute in the Ross School of
Business.
