Law Students For Sustainable Business Gifts Sustainable Business Collection to Law Library
Law Students for Sustainable Business (“LSSB”) recently announced that it will gift approximately $40,000 to Oregon Law’s library to create a new Sustainable Business Collection. LSSB’s gift will purchase more than 350 books and videos, building a collection unique in the Northwest. The funding’s significance is enhanced by the fact that funds were put together by and for students, from a coalition of sources including the Associated Students of the University of Oregon.
The new collection will be available for cross-disciplinary research and development in the vital field of sustainable business. As law student Casey Whelan explained, “Sustainable business and renewable energy development are issues that affect everyone, and the University has the chance to become a leader in the field.”
Board members of the Law Students for Sustainable Business include Casey Whelan, Matt Schroettnig, Joe Kraus, Scott Schneider, faculty advisor Rob Illig, and industry advisor Ed Einowski.
