	 "What do you call a lawyer who helps people share, 
cooperate, barter, foster local economies, and build sustainable 
communities?
That sounds like the beginning of a lawyer joke, but actually, it's 
the beginning of new field of law practice..." Janelle Orsi


Janelle Orsi is a "sharing lawyer" in private practice, specializing 
in helping communities share housing and cars, form cooperatives, 
launch urban farming initiatives, and form social enterprises. She is 
co-author of "The Sharing Solution: How to Save Money, Simplify Your 
Life & Build Community" (Nolo Press 2009). Janelle earned her J.D. 
from the UC Berkeley School of Law.

The <http://www.sustainableeconomieslawcenter.org/>Sustainable 
Economies Law Center (SELC), facilitates the growth of more 
sustainable and localized economies through education, research, and 
advocacy to support practices such as barter, sharing, cooperatives, 
urban agriculture, shared housing, local currencies, 
community-supported enterprises, and local investing. Janelle and 
Jenny Kassan are co-authors of the American Bar Association's 
forthcoming book, "Sharing Law: Understanding the Legal Landscape of 
the Sharing Economy".
