The Legal Landscape of Social Enterprise and the Sharing Economy

"What do you call a lawyer who helps people share, cooperate, barter, foster local economies, and build sustainable communities? That sounds like the beginning of a lawyer joke, but actually, it's the beginning of new field of law practice..." Janelle Orsi

Join Janelle Orsi & Jenny Kassan, Co-Directors of the Sustainable Economies Law Center (SELC), for an entertaining and informative talk about the emerging sharing economy, and its many legal implications.

The Sustainable Economies Law Center facilitates the growth of sustainable, localized, and just economies, through legal research, professional training, resource development, and education.

Janelle & Jenny are co-authors of the American Bar Association's soon to be published book, "Sharing Law: Understanding the Legal Landscape of the Sharing Economy".
