Conversation Circles: Stand-alone laws for a thriving ecosystem

Social enterprise is an up-hill battle. We tackle wicked problems that perplex government, respond to market failure and empower people marginalised by the mainstream economy. Our ascent is made more treacherous as we slip down the legal and regulatory chasm between charities and business.

This Conversation Circle wants you to share your journey and ask what innovative regulatory reform would support a thriving social enterprise sector?

Juantia Pope, Head of Not for Profit Law at Justice Connect, will lead the conversation about the many and varied unique legal issues faced by social enterprise.

For background reading (or a journey down memory lane) take a look at Justice Connect’s Guide to social enterprise legal issues when setting up a social enterprise. You will find on page 33 discussion about specific legal structures that have been created for social enterprise in the UK and USA.

The Conversation Circles event series aims to:

  • Create an opportunity for practitioner-led dialog, collaboration and problem-solving.
  • Build a shared understanding of the features of a fair, inclusive and sustainable economy.
  • Identify opportunities for social enterprise to shape the new economy today.
