The Grunin Center hosts a range of conferences and events for lawyers, and other stakeholders working in the field of social entrepreneurship and impact investing, including the following highlights:
• Annual Conference on Legal Issues in Social Entrepreneurship and Impact Investing – in the US and Beyond, co-organized by the Grunin Center and the Impact Investing Legal Working Group. Attended by over 400 participants (including lawyers, academics, policymakers and other professionals working in the field) from across the globe, this leading conference is in its seventh year and explores themes that include: catalyzing capital for good, scaling social enterprises, certifying impact, investing in climate action, and responsible exits.
• Legal Scholars Convening. This convening is intended to advance field-building legal scholarship in the fields of social entrepreneurship and impact investing by bringing together legal scholars who are writing and researching in these fields and introducing them to the legal/policy challenges and opportunities that legal practitioners are facing.
• Webinar Series: Building a Legal Practice in Impact Investing. The Grunin Center has partnered with the Bertha Centre for Social Innovation and Entrepreneurship to host a webinar series that builds on the Annual Conference programming and provides participants across Africa with an opportunity to learn from international and local legal experts in impact investing. The Grunin Center hopes to replicate the series annually across various regions to support the growth of a global community of legal practice, while further informing and enriching our own work with learnings from other regions.
