NYU Law and the Grunin Center are expanding curricular offerings to incorporate more themes of social entrepreneurship and are deepening NYU Law’s current business clinical offerings to provide students with an opportunity to engage directly in the representation of social entrepreneurs and impact investors. In addition to our course offerings, NYU Law students have opportunities to engage in a range of social entrepreneurship activities, including summer work with the Public Interest Law Center, participation in related symposia convened by the NYU Journal of Law & Business, and participation in extracurricular activities managed by the student-led Social Enterprise & Startup Law (SE-SL) Group.
The Grunin Center also provides NYU Law students with an interest in social entrepreneurship with scholarship and internship opportunities to help them pursue a career in social entrepreneurship by following a curriculum which combines legal and business skills with the ultimate goal of creating innovative solutions to pressing social problems. NYU Law students who have a demonstrated commitment to the field of law and social entrepreneurship may also be eligible to receive the White & Case Social Entrepreneurship Award.
Finally, the Grunin Center is working to advance the fields of social entrepreneurship and impact investing through legal scholarship by hosting an annual Legal Scholars Convening and by identifying the white spaces in legal scholarship through legal literature reviews.
