The Centre for Social Finance Law a legal advice and research centre focussed exclusively on social finance, social enterprise and socially responsible business.
We work with social entrepreneurs, investors and intermediaries to help them establish, finance and operate businesses, investment funds and projects designed to have positive social and environmental impact.
We provide commercial legal services for all forms of social finance, including impact investing, blended finance, philanthropy, ESG and responsible investment, and co-operative and mutual finance.
The Centre is an active participant in the growing network of social impact lawyers, advisers, intermediaries, entrepreneurs and investors. We research and explore law reform opportunities that promote and support sustainable impact.
The Centre is based in Sydney, Australia.
Michael Ryland is the principal and founding director of the Centre for Social Finance Law.
