    Social Enterprise Law: Trust, Public Benefit and Capital Markets
    A Discussion with Authors Dana Brakman Reiser, Professor of Law and Steven A. Dean, Vice Dean and Professor of Law

    About the Book
    Social enterprises are hybrid organizations, producing goods and services that generate wealth and enhance people’s welfare. Because they are a recent phenomenon and share attributes of both profit-generating firms and non-profit endeavors, legal regimes have yet to catch up to and encourage the twin goals of profit and social purpose. In Social Enterprise Law, Dana Brakman Reiser and Steven A. Dean present a series of audacious legal technologies designed to unleash the full potential of social enterprise. Detailing tools as diverse as innovative financial instruments, novel tax regimes, and creative succession planning, this book offers new insights on how the law can help entrepreneurs and investors find and trust each other, and together realize the promise of a marriage of markets and mission.

    Professors Brakman Reiser and Dean will be joined by David Porzio '06, COO and Co-Founder, Translator and Ben Rader, General Counsel, Goldman Sachs Foundation.
