Nonprofit Laws: A Practical Guide to Legal Issues for Nonprofit Organizations (Paperback)
Nonprofit Law provides lawyers who represent nonprofit organizations with basic information and guidance on legal issues that commonly arise for nonprofits. It provides an overview of the law with regard to particular issues with limited statutory and regulatory citations. This resource covers the formation, tax, governance, and documentation, as well as other areas including mergers and sale of assets of nonprofits, and dissolution of nonprofits.
For lawyers who need a quick reference, Nonprofit Law:

- Addresses issues relating to formation and describes important documents that are part of the formation process, including articles of incorporation and bylaws
- Discusses taxation issues with a focus on the types of federal tax exemptions that are available under the Internal Revenue Code
- Addresses governance matters and describes the individuals involved in the governance of a nonprofit corporation as well as the fiduciary duties imposed on the board of directors
- Focuses on other matters that often arise in representation of a nonprofit and includes discussion on subsidiaries of nonprofits, the merger, sale of assets and other entity combinations involving nonprofits, and dissolution of nonprofits
- And much more
The appendices include a checklist for articles of incorporation and bylaws, a list of tax exemptions under the Internal Revenue Code, as well as resource materials that can provide more detailed information on the subject matter.
