Courses and Clinical Offerings


NYU Law offers a range of curricular offerings that incorporate themes of social entrepreneurship, impact investing and sustainable development.  Students interested in these fields can combine more traditional training in corporate, securities, and tax law with specialized courses, like Law & Business of Social Entrepreneurship or Financing Development, among others.

The Center also is supporting NYU Law’s International Transactions Clinic, which provides students with an opportunity to engage directly in the representation of social entrepreneurs and impact investors globally:

International Transactions Clinic (ITC): Launched by Professor Deborah Burand in the fall of 2015, the International Law Transactions Clinic offers students the opportunity to provide legal services to clients that are conducting cross-border transactions in emerging markets. The bulk of the ITC’s clients include social enterprises and impact investors. The clinic includes a fieldwork component that allows students to receive hands-on training from practicing attorneys as they represent clients of the ITC. Another component of the ITC involves students meeting in a seminar twice a week. In these seminar meetings, the ITC concentrates on teaching students’ skills that are critically important to their professional development as they enter into practice areas that involve international transactions and to support their client fieldwork.
