Tepper Fellows: Social Enterprise Law Research Assistants
Each year the Grunin Center works with paid student Research Assistants (Tepper Fellows) to:
- maintain and expand the Social Enterprise Law Tracker, a status tool that allows user to visualize how laws and regulations impacting social entrepreneurship have spread across the United States, and
- publish an annual report, Mapping the State of Social Enterprise and the Law, that evaluates the state of social enterprise and the law in the United States. The report generally examines the challenges in defining the field of social entrepreneurship and impact investing, legislative developments in the United States with respect to forms of legal entities that are available to social entrepreneurs, and the role of U.S. legal education in training a new generation of lawyers knowledgeable about the field of social entrepreneurship and impact investing.
