Prof. Katz is Secretary of New AALS Section on Nonprofit Law and Philanthropy
On May 26, 2006 the Association of American Law Schools (AALS) approved the creation of a new Section on Nonprofit Law and Philanthropy. IU’s Prof. Robert Katz was one of the organizing members and now serves as the group’s first secretary, as well as the primary web master for the section’s web site: http://www.philanthropy.iupui.edu/aals.html. The section will provide a forum and resources for professors who teach and conduct research in nonprofit law and philanthropy. “The United States has the largest and most dynamic nonprofit and philanthropic sector in the world,” says Professor Katz, “and the AALS section’s creation reflects the growing prominence of nonprofit and philanthropy law in legal scholarship, education, and practice.” The section will host its first event at the AALS 2007 Annual Meeting on “State-Level Legal Reform of the Law of Non-Profit Organizations” to be held at the January AALS meeting in Washington, D.C.
