Inside Nonprofits is the first-of-its-kind guide to the legal issues surrounding nonprofits. Loaded with insights, practical details, and checklists for novice and experienced professionals alike, it is an indispensable guide to running a top-notch legal, compliance and governance function within a nonprofit organization. Complete with a department-by-department look at legal matters likely to arise across the whole organization, the book explains how to spot and handle the wide variety of matters likely to cross inside counsel's desk: intellectual property, government relations, real estate, financing, labor & employment, tax, consumer regulatory, corporate governance and more. Included are chapters on facilitating communications about legal matters with non-legal staff, many of whom have never worked with a lawyer before; envisioning and executing new business initiatives that tie into the mission and support the goals of the organization with confidence that all legal matters are covered; and improving risk-management, financial and operational efficiencies, in partnership with legal counsel.
