The Social Impact Hub (Non-Intensive Clinic) is an experiential learning program. In this course students will put their legal and business skills and knowledge to use and gain practical experience in different areas of social impact. The course provides formal and informal training, as well as supervised practical experience, in planning and implementing a project in a field of social impact.
The Social Impact Hub will work with industry and foundations to develop and conduct a variety of applied projects in different areas of social impact. In each term projects will be offered from the following fields
Social entrepreneurship and social innovation
Business and human rights
Corporate social responsibility
Pro bono and volunteering
Law and social movements
Measuring social impact
Other related fields.
Students will be able to preference the project(s) on which they want to work. Students will work in small teams on each project. Students may be involved in research and policy work, writing, advocacy, advising and related activities. Note that the Social Impact Hub does not pursue litigation. Students will be critically analysing the role of lawyers, businesses, foundations, not-for-profits and investors as part of the course.
