Samantha J. Prince

Assistant Professor of Law and Director of Legal Analysis and Writing

Samantha Prince is passionate about advancing entrepreneurship law initiatives for Dickinson Law. Professor Prince founded and moderates Inside Entrepreneurship Law — a blog featuring posts written by students that provide helpful legal information to entrepreneurs and their counsel. Additionally, she implemented mobile student-led entrepreneurial workshops on various topics.

In March, 2019, Dickinson Law students and Professor Prince were featured in an article by Llewellyn King of White House Chronicle, “Will Smart Cities Be Haven for New Kind of Lawyer?”.

Professor Prince's interests in partnering with entrepreneurs stem from her extensive practice experience. For over 20 years, she partnered with entrepreneurs during their start-up phases and beyond. At Hedger and Hedger, a boutique transactional law firm, she handled business transactions, including tax, contracts (domestic and international), mergers/acquisitions, and securities offerings (private and public). She also represented a company through its IPO and afterward as the primary drafter of its securities disclosure documents.
