ACPNS researchers scan Australia and the world constantly for legal cases that involve important issues concerning charities, nonprofit organisations, philanthropy, gifts and bequests.
These cases are useful for those that advise nonprofit organisations, their senior management and boards. They are mainly from Australia, but cases of significance from other jurisdictions such as New Zealand, Canada, United Kingdom and USA are also included.
A search of case material can be made through ePrint’s Advanced Search function. It is suggested that the filters be used to identify the desired case or topic are:
- Author: ‘McGregor-Lowndes’ (Note: Using the quotation marks is critical for the search to work)
- Then place search terms (e.g. ‘bequest’) in either ‘full text’, ‘abstract’ or ‘key terms’.
