Australian Ambassador &The Asia Foundation Representative visit Kathmandu University School of Law at Dhulikhel

October 18, 2017

Australian Ambassador to Nepal, HE Peter Budd visited Kathmandu University School of Law (KUSL) at Dhulikhel today. He was accompanied by The Asia Foundation’s Country Representative Dr. George Varughese.

The purpose of the visit was to be introduced to KUSL’s project on Subnational Economic Governance and Law, which is being implemented with the assistance of the Australian Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade through The Asia Foundation.

The project enables the School of Law to conduct legal research and dialogue on the development of local economic laws and policies, establish an economic law clinic, and publish newsletters on related themes in support of subnational economic governance.

 

The visiting dignitaries were received at KUSL by Kathmandu University Vice Chancellor Dr Ram Kantha Makaju Shrestha, KUSL Dean Dr Bipin Adhikari, and other senior faculty.

The School of Law is the seventh and latest School at Kathmandu University. It was established in 2014 to tap the great opportunity abundant in Nepal for a high quality law school, which can maintain an educational programme that prepares its students for admission to the bar, and effective as well as responsible participation in the legal profession.

The first undergraduate programme that the School has offered thus far is an integrated five year Bachelor of Business Management & Bachelor of Law (BBM, LL.B) course. This programme will help create a new generation of bright young lawyers who will be trained in law and management, so as to cater to the requirements of the business and corporate sector in Nepal, one which has long struggled with the paucity of trained lawyers who have some understanding of business management and organizational practices, and can bring fresh energy, commitment, leadership and creativity into finding solutions to complex legal problems.

The School has recently also started Masters by Research Programme in Energy and Infrastructure Law.

As a School committed to research in the areas of trade, investment, energy & infrastructure, intellectual property and corporate law, the project support of the Australian Embassy and The Asia Foundation is important for the School in its mission to be relevant to the development and institutionalization of the economic law regime at the grassroots, especially in the context of federalism.

Apart from the officials, the visiting dignitaries also interacted with the faculties and senior students of the School of Law.

Date: 10-12 November 2017
Venue: KUSOM, Balkumari (Residential event)
Participation Fee: Rs. 2500 /- (to be paid after selection, includes all boarding and meal expenses during the event)

LEARN MORE ABOUT STARTUP WEEKEND HERE ↓
 
WHAT IS STARTUP WEEKEND?
Startup Weekends are 54-hour long events where developers, designers, marketers, product managers, startup enthusiasts come together to share ideas, build products and launch startups! Teams go from an idea scrawled on a napkin to a working prototype and maybe even paying customers, all within a single weekend. Startup Weekends are a global phenomenon with events being held in 1000+ cities across the world. In Nepal alone, we have had 10 Startup Weekends with over 550 participants.

WHY ATTEND A STARTUP WEEKEND?
Many people want to be entrepreneurs, but find it hard to commit on top of study/work/family commitments. Startup Weekends are the ideal high-impact/low-commitment vehicle for you to test both your ideas and yourself to see if entrepreneurship really is your cup of tea. Not everyone can spare 3 months, but everyone has a weekend to spare.

HOW DOES STARTUP WEEKEND WORK?
Expect to be busy from the Friday evening through Sunday night. We begin on Friday night with open-mic pitches, where participants get 60 seconds to pitch their ideas to the crowd and try to recruit the best talent in the room! Teams are formed around the most exciting/viable ideas, and spend the rest of the night planning for the battle ahead. The whole of Saturday and much of Sunday) is a mad dash to build, validate, pivot, polish and test your Minimal Viable Product (MVP). The weekend culminates with a pitch-night where teams present their MVP to a panel of judges, guests and fellow participants. At the end of it all, a winner is crowned and everyone celebrates over a few casual drinks and gets a chance to network before saying goodbye! 

WHAT DO I GET OUT OF IT?
1. You will get a taste of what it’s like in the startup world, and learn a ton first-hand about every step of building a startup (at the very least, it’ll be a memorable weekend away from your usual daily routine).
2. You might find your perfect co-founder soulmate with whom you’ll go on to launch a multi-million dollar startup, be it on this weekend or down the road.
3. You will get a chance to network and mingle with some of the top brass in the Nepalese entrepreneurship / investing communities as well as the industry experts. – Individuals that would otherwise be very hard to reach – and ask them questions to your hearts content.
4. You will greatly expand your network and build lasting relationships with the most innovative, creative and motivated people in the city. This could mean a new client, employer, business partner, or even a friend!
5. Plus, if your team wins, you will get exciting prizes, heaps of additional resources and mentorship to help you get your startup off the ground. There are also plenty of investors in the crowd, so if your pitches were something special, you might even get funding (it happens!). 
 
BUT I'M NOT AN ENTREPRENEUR...
You don’t have to be! (And if you want to be, this is a great place to start) 

At every Startup Weekend, participants come from all walks of life ranging from students to educators, bankers to doctors, even retirees! Worried you don’t have the skills? That’s why we have experienced mentors here to guide you (and Startup Weekends are about learning anyway). Too young/old? We have had participants as young as 12 and as old as 70 (not kidding!), so if you fall within that range, you’re sweet!

READY TO APPLY? 
- Those interested in applying in the event must be a university level student with a strong interest in entrepreneurship and teamwork.
- Participants are required to apply online via an application form that needs to be filled out. Once you have been shortlisted and selected, you will have to pay a nominal fee of Rs. 2500 /- which includes all your meal and board expenses during the event.
- Participants may apply as an individual.
- Registered team members/participants accept the terms and conditions of participation, as well as the use of personal data, and photography/video recording during and after the event by staff for the purposes of producing editorial content and advertising materials.
- Lastly, please note that applicants submitting incomplete application forms or inaccurate information will be disqualified.

CONFIRMATION OF PARTICIPATION
We will choose the 100 best applications for the event. Selected applicants will receive an official confirmation via the email address provided in the application. The confirmation will include a Participant Pack that details all information concerning the event.
