Legal Structures for Start Ups


  11am - 12.30pm, 1.30pm - 3.30pm

The programme is divided into two workshops:

The first session will consider incorporation and what that means; provide an overview of the most adopted legal structures for social enterprises in Scotland; and will clarify the governance and legal responsibilities required from your Board of Directors.

The second session will consider the asset lock and what it means; explain the need for Memorandum and Articles of Association, highlighting their importance to a social enterprise; and will go over some frequently asked questions.

Join this engaging, interactive workshop to find out more.

For you if: 

  • You are starting a social enterprise and want to know about choosing the right legal structure;
  • You would like to understand the roles and responsibilities of Directors;
  • You want to better understand Memorandum and Articles and what they mean;
