Debates in Charity Law (Publication Review)

Research output: Contribution to journalBook/Film/Article review


John Picton and Jennifer Sigafoos, from Liverpool University’s Charity Law and Policy Unit, have brought scholars together from around the world to address some of the juiciest controversies troubling charity law. Here "charity law" encompasses not just the law of purpose trusts, but also eligibility for formation of charitable incorporated organisations, charitable regulatory oversight and modification principles, the regulation of fundraising, the provision of privileges such as tax concessions, and the fiduciary duties of charity decision-makers—which include the members of a charitable company limited by guarantee, as demonstrated by Lehtimäki v Cooper [2020] UKSC 33; [2020] 3 W.L.R. 461.
