Cliff Paulin loves to teach how humans can work together to build regenerative intentional communities.
He holds a BS in Environment Science from the University of Arizona, a JD and a Masters of Study in Environmental Law from Vermont Law School, is a member of the California State Bar, and has worked in legal, mediation, and facilitation roles for over a decade.
He has served on numerous non-profit and local elected board of directors. He is one of the co-founders of The Oak Granary, an environmental education non-profit and intentional community in Potter Valley, CA.
Cliff will be presenting on legal structures for intentional communities, and various considerations to consider in creating resilient invisible structures. He would like students to come away from his presentation with a better understanding of potential options for legal structures and a list of questions to ask before starting down that path.
