Legal Case Notes

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.

Our Quarterly Case Note Summaries capture key legal cases in an easy-to-digest format for lawyers, accountants and managers involved in the nonprofit sector. Summaries include significant nonprofit cases with links to full case summaries. Researchers also publish a top ten list of cases and trends that shaped charity and nonprofit law, and the legal almanacs contain collected summaries of court cases involving nonprofit organisations, from Australia and overseas, along with updates of legislative changes in all Australian jurisdictions.
