This new resource is the first created by the American Law Institute to delve into legal practices related to the nonprofit sector. The piece is dedicated to “restate a single law for charities.” At the San Bernardino County Law Library, it is included as a part of the American Law Institute’s larger Restatement of the Law series. This overarching work expands on the various forms of charities, regulation of assets, the fluctuation of charities’ purposes over time, governmental effects on charities, and the influence of private parties on charitable nonprofit organizations. This volume discusses a topic that is not often covered in great detail and may be useful for those interested in social and economic law as it relates to charitable nonprofit organizations.
