Influencer Law Clinic

The Influencer Law Clinic aims to clarify the rules that apply in influencer marketing and monetization of content on social media. We help influencers, agencies, brands, legislators and citizens to better understand what rights and responsibilities they have when they support, produce or consume creative. We so contribute to making the Internet safer.

Environmental pledge

The Influencer Law Clinic endorses the social justice pledge launched by the University of York on environmental matters in two ways: 

  1. By raising awareness about sustainable consumption on social media through influencer marketing;
  2. By committing to run environmentally-friendly activities as part of the Clinic’s values.

‘Climate change is one of the most significant social justice issues we face. Its impacts will be felt most by the poorest and most vulnerable. As a student law clinic with a commitment to social justice, we commit to raising awareness of the issue of climate change in our teaching, research and activism; and to finding ways to support law students to contribute to the struggle for climate justice.’
