In this podcast, you will learn more about the work of the Sustainable Economies Law Center (SELC) and how you can utilize business, employment, property, and tax law to grow local, sustainable economies.
Janelle Orsi, J.D. Boalt Hall, from the Sustainable Economies Law Center addresses the unique legal questions that arise in efforts to build more sustainable economies, including those relating to entity formation and structure, securities laws, employment laws, tax laws, real estate law, zoning laws, risk management, and regulation of commercial activity.
