Impact Investment Lawyering

This course concerns legal issues associated with transacting investments that are intended to generate social and/or environmental returns in addition to financial returns (also called "impact investments"). Topics include legal issues associated with entity formation, capital structures, due diligence, documentation, monitoring, and workouts of impact investments. Focus will be on cross-border impact investments but much of discussion will be applicable to US-based impact investments too. Students will be expected to present research on these issues and the topics of their papers. Students also will engage in drafting exercises in and outside of class.
