Why Legal Literacy is Vital for Young Entrepreneurs
4 September 2021
12:30—14:00

The majority of school-age children and students dream of having their own business. One of the factors preventing young people from starting their own business, however, is the fear of bearing legal liability for its activities and many respondents indicated that they are afraid of receiving criminal penalties. This session will look at the importance of doing business within a legal framework, as well as the state protection mechanisms available, discussing them in a way that is understandable and accessible to young people. What are the rights of young entrepreneurs? How can ideas be protected, and how can tax burdens be reduced legally? What state protection is available in the case of unlawful attacks on businesses? Why is legal literacy so necessary in a world where ignorance is no excuse, and how can a system providing legal education for young people be developed?
