Grunin Center for Law and Social Entrepreneurship

Grunin Center for Law and Social Entrepreneurship at NYU Law

The Grunin Center was launched in May 2017 through the generous support of NYU School of Law graduates Jay Grunin ’67 and Linda Kalmanowitz Grunin ’67 and the Jay and Linda Grunin Foundation. The Grunin Center is advancing a global movement that creates new ways for law and lawyers to drive positive change in the world.

The mission of the Grunin Center is to enhance the community of lawyers and legal institutions engaged in social entrepreneurship and impact investing and to accelerate their effective participation in these fields. To fulfill this mission, the Grunin Center educates students and practicing lawyers about legal issues in the fields of social entrepreneurship and impact investing; disseminates knowledge and legal research about law and policy developments in these fields; and collaborates with other field-building organizations, universities, and research centers.
