Beyond the Classroom presents an Evening with Laura Jordan on the Potential of Benefit Corporations as an Advantageous Business Structure

Description:
Benefit Corporations are innovative new legal entities in Maryland, New Jersey, Virginia and Vermont that have been chartered to serve positive public purposes. What are the advantages of this business structure from traditional corporations? How can Benefit Corporations help strengthen Main Street and communities by serving broader public purposes that benefit society and the environment? In 2010, Laura E. Jordan formed the first Benefit Corporation in the United States for her clients engaged in developing a ground-breaking sustainable retail industry model. She has since consulted widely on this new corporate form, and has been invited to testify on legislation creating similar corporate forms. Laura Jordan is Managing Principal of The Capital Law Firm, PLLC, in Washington, DC. In conjunction with film director Guy Jacobson, she directs Redlight Children's Civil Litigation Pilot Project, an innovative civil litigation model designed to interrupt demand for child sex services. {Will appear in FYI on Nov 9, 2011
