Sample Project

LongDragon School

LongDragon School is a project of two young student entrepreneurs who have set themselves the goal of making education a true hobby. As China fanatics, there seemed to be no better way than teaching the Chinese language to young children between the ages of 8 and 12 in a fun interactive way of teaching. Several legal questions arose at the start of the project.

 

180DC Legal gave extensive advice, including an overview of the potential organizational forms for LongDragon and their respective advantages and disadvantages. The data collection was also fully screened, highlighted the most important points for attention with regard to GDPR and a draft privacy statement was drawn up. In addition, a number of questions were answered that related, among other things, to the name of the organization, any qualification requirements of teachers and intellectual property rights.
