Janelle Orsi Practicing Law in the Sharing Economy  

This week another interesting interview from the economics of happiness conference in Portland Oregon earlier this month.  Many folks don't consider talking about law, the environment, and happiness all in the same paragraph. But Janell is a person that has dedicated her life to seeing localization and small things work. The is an amazing woman and a powerhouse for sustainable innovation.

In 2010, Janelle was profiled by the American Bar Association as a Legal Rebel, an attorney who is[spp-tweet " “remaking the legal profession through the power of innovation.”"] In 2012, Janelle was one of 100 people listed on The (En)Rich List, which names individuals “whose contributions enrich paths to sustainable futures.”


Our interview unfortunately it was crammed into a very small time slot on the last day of the conference, on top of that, the media room was not available so this interview was conducted in the third floor solarium beautiful view but terrible acoustics.

Check this out, she is also an awesome cartoonist and her topics are poignant:





Below, find some clips from her websites and below that links to books and resources for all of us to use should we need to research legal liability for our down-home operations.

One talk that she gave a few years ago has a title which is close to our heart:[spp-tweet " Thinking Outside of the Boss/Creating a Worker Owned Cooperative."]

If you are thinking of moving forward with any type of cooperative, eco village, shared housing I suggest you start right here with Janelle's home page:   There are a plethera of valuable resources.
