Lynnise E. Pantin
Founder, Entrepreneurship & Community Development Clinic
Lynnise Pantin is the Pritzger Pucker Family Clinical Professor of Transactional Law and she is the founding director of the Entrepreneurship and Community Development Clinic. Students in the clinic develop lawyering skills as they provide legal services in a range of transactional, intellectual property, and governance matters to community organizations and low- and moderate-income entrepreneurs.
Pantin’s pedagogy is informed by her scholarship focusing on the systemic
socioeconomic barriers faced by entrepreneurs of color and those of modest means. Her recent journal articles include “Race and Equity in the Age of Unicorns” in the Hastings Law Journal, “The Economic Justice Imperative for Transactional Law Clinics” in the Villanova Law Review and “The Wealth Gap and the Racial Disparities in the Startup Ecosystem.”
