Resources for Nonprofits
Lawyers Alliance offers several resources to help nonprofits understand legal
and regulatory issues, reduce the risk of liability, and be accountable.
Publications and news alerts:
Advising Nonprofits, Bylaws That Work, Getting Organized, Changing the Name of a New York Not-for-Profit Corporation, and our other publications
are designed for non-lawyers and are available for purchase
online. Our news and legal
alerts inform nonprofits about pertinent legal developments
Workshops: Our workshops, seminars, and
webinars are open to nonprofit managers, board members, and others involved
in running the day-to-day activities of community-based and nonprofit
organizations. Click here for a list of recent
and upcoming workshops and registration information.
Resource Calls: Our staff members
provide information through our Resource
Call Hotline. Nonprofit managers, board members, attorneys
representing them, and members of the public may call with
questions. This service is free.
Co-counseling support: This resource is only
available to clients. For each matter placed with a volunteer attorney, a
Lawyers Alliance staff attorney serves as co-counsel to answer questions and
address concerns related to the pro bono relationship.
