Charity Law for Voluntary Organisations


18th September 2000, 10am - 1pm, Pearce Institute, 840 Govan Road, Glasgow

How does an organisation obtain charitable status and what are the legal requirements for charities?

This half day conference will examine Scottish charity law and will consider the duties and responsibilities of all those involved in the management of a charity. The role and power of the Scottish Charities Office and Inland Revenue will be discussed and there will be an opportunity for questions and debate.

When should voluntary organisations think about obtaining corporate status? What are the pros and cons of incorporation as a legal structure? All of these questions and more will be answered.

Speakers - Stuart Cross, Dundee University's Charity Law Team and Mike Dailly, Principal Solicitor, Govan Law Centre

Cost £30 (£15 Govan based voluntary organisations - a limited number of concessionary places are available - please apply in writing).
