Charities, Non-Profits and the Law
Charities are faced with many of the same operational and human resource challenges faced by other business, while operating in a highly regulated environment. Additionally, most charities depend on fundraising, which presents some liability risk, including risks for directors and officers. Further, the common law imposes special obligations on the directors and officers of charities. For practitioners involved in the provision of legal services to charities, it is imperative to remain aware of developments in a broad swath of practice areas. Our annual program on charities, non-profits and the law has been designed with this reality in mind, and delivers insights from our expert faculty on various legal topics of relevance to this important sector within society.
