Nonprofit Governance Law, Practices & Trends Governance seems to be the subject that is perched atop every nonprofit lawyer's worry/wish list, despite the fact that there is not much law on the point, particularly at the federal level. This ascension in importance is largely due to the various organizations propounding best practices and principles for public charities and other forms of nonprofit organizations, the IRS's redesigned Form 990, the agency's aggressive push of certain good governance principles in the tax-exempt organizations' setting, and scandals brought to light by the Senate Finance Committee staff. Stemming from the authors' endless hours of meditating over the new Form 990 and sifting through the many (and often inconsistent) best practices principles, Nonprofit Governance fills the need for some cohesion in the realm of nonprofit governance by providing in-depth coverage and explanations of the laws, practices, and trends in this volatile area. An invaluable resource for nonprofit executives, officers, directors, nonprofit lawyers, accountants, members of boards of directors, and consultants, legal experts Bruce R. Hopkins and Virginia Gross's Nonprofit Governance brims with detailed documentation and references to regulations, rulings, cases, and tax literature (which includes current articles and tax law review notes). Here, readers will find a wealth of clarifying information on: Federal and state law fundamentals Board member responsibilities and liability Nonprofit governance principles Nonprofit governance issues Application of the private benefit doctrine Governance and the redesigned Form 990 Recommended polices and procedures Governance case studies Governance legal audit A law primer for nonprofit board members And much more The book includes an exhaustive index, Internal Revenue Code citations and numerous case studies, tips, forms, and checklists to round out the authoritative coverage. Nonprofit Governance is an indispensable guide to, and through, all of the governance policymaking that is unfolding, to improve the management of nonprofit organizations as well as to help organizations be in compliance with nonprofit governance law.

Fulfilling a Dream By: Bruce R. Hopkins Bruce R. Hopkins was a successful nonprofit lawyer, author of several books, a law professor, and a popular speaker. So what could possibly make him want to complete a doctorate of juridical science? Simple – it was his dream. In 2012 he took his first class for his new degree. He was 72. Fulfilling a Dream: The Ultimate Law Degree is the record of Hopkins’ new adventures in law school and completing his dissertation. Sprinting through legal history, Hopkins shares his expertise in tax law, tax procedure, banking and constitutional law, and more, and his reassurances that even seasoned lawyers can find legal writing obtuse, mind-boggling, and downright weird. Part memoir, part legal study guide, part playful instructions on what to do – and not do – while pursuing a third law degree, Fulfilling a Dream is a smart and hilarious take on pursuing your dreams, no matter the fear.
