Attorneys in the New Economy: A Networking Reception and Discussion
Hosted by The Sustainable Economies Law Center
Please join us for a reception and discussion focused on the exploding need for attorneys specialized in building localized, sustainable, and resilient economies. There is growing demand for attorneys to help implement solutions for local investing, social enterprise, micro-enterprise, local food, urban agriculture, cooperatives, localized exchange systems, collaborative consumption, economically sustainable housing, and much more.
To the extent that local economies are transforming, so too will the work of lawyers. Come discuss how this may reshape the legal profession and learn about new fields of legal practice opening up in the new economy!
Beer, wine, and hearty appetizers will be served!
