Law For Economic Democracy

A Network for Legal Professionals


Law for Economic Democracy is an online community for lawyers, law students, legal apprentices, and other legal and tax professionals to learn, share, seek feedback, grow professional networks, and together strengthen the legal foundations for more just and resilient economies. 


We have reached a critical moment in history, and legal and tax professionals are needed, en masse, to aid in the epic reinvention of economic systems throughout the world. Every single community needs legal and tax practitioners who can assist cooperatives, land trusts, enterprises, and organizations that will create locally-owned and sustainable sources of food, healthcare, energy, housing, transportation, and jobs.

A Commitment to Economic Democracy

This is the right network for you if you agree that your purpose as a legal or tax professional is to generate economies, communities, and legal systems that:

  • Empower all people to participate democratically in the management of resources critical to their lives, including jobs, energy, housing, and natural resources,
  • Resist the destructive qualities of profit maximization, racism, and inequality, and
  • Nourish people and ecosystems in the long term.
