Continuing Legal Education Videos

Since 2010, the Law Center has taught many classes on various facets of practicing law in the sharing economy, such as cooperative taxation and advising worker self-directed nonprofits. In addition, a recent MCLE we co-sponsored and taught was on Practicing Law in a Post-Capitalist Society, which addressed bias in the current legal profession and ethical considerations for transitioning to new and more positive paradigms for both the economy and the legal system.

Now, we're offering our CLE courses online

Learn how to advise nonprofits, worker cooperatives, and other social enterprises! If you sign up to be a Community Member here, or if you pledge to volunteer at our Resilient Communities Legal Cafe, you can access these videos for free!
