Not-for-Profit Law

The law in New Zealand about the structure and operations of societies and charitable trusts is important, because those organisations are the means by which many services are provided to our communities.  Societies and charitable trusts provide social, sports, recreational, and artistic services throughout the country, most of them run by volunteers.  However, the law relating to those organisations receives little attention in university legal studies.  This website contains articles which discuss some of the legal issues that arise in such organisations.
