The prediction that companies and investors would retreat from sustainability & ESG efforts in the face of criticism and economic downturn is proving to be incorrect. The global pandemic, racial injustice, rising income inequality, and climate change have only heightened the demands for capitalism to take account of its stakeholders. These demands are coming from investors, regulators, employees, and the public, who are increasingly asking companies to manage their environmental and social impact. Precisely how to meet this growing demand remains unclear.
The course brings fresh perspectives directly from in-house attorneys of companies in various sectors that are taking on the challenge of becoming stakeholder-focused companies. The course will use a mix of theory, case study, discussion, and speakers to bring to life the day-to-day of practicing sustainability & ESG law at companies. Students will learn how to think strategically about legal risks and opportunities and ultimately how to lead in both law and business.

Remote + Summer Students PLEASE NOTE: You cannot take Sustainable Capitalism & ESG in the fall semester if you take this course in the summer.
