Spring 2020 - 58304 - PA 288K - Advanced Topics in Public Policy

Nonprofit Law

This course will develop an understanding of the state and federal laws applicable to the formation, management and regulation of nonprofit organizations, with emphasis on the legal and policy underpinnings of the nonprofit sector, practical application of the law in execution of mission, and proper implementation of compliance safeguards to avoid state regulatory action and negative public scrutiny. Class concepts will develop an ability to guide future client objectives beyond tax implications; specifically, with focus on fiduciary duties, director and officer liability, best practices in nonprofit operations and stewarding funds, and legal implications attendant to charitable, nonprofit status.  Grading will be based primarily on a floating final exam, with minimal course assignments and consideration for class participation.
