Exposed: A Legal Field Guide for Nonprofit Executives Edit Title
EXPOSED was released in late 2009 as a follow-up to our workshops and training programs for non-lawyer executives covering a host of legal topics. Over the years countless attendees have told us that our training programs offer a scare-free overview of legal risks perfectly suited for nonlawyers who care about their organizations.
If you’ve ever been intimidated by a voluminous contract, a legal department that always says "no," or you have nightmares about the possibility of a lawsuit against your nonprofit, this book will provide welcome relief.
Written for non-lawyer nonprofit executives by two lawyers who also happen to be experienced nonprofit executives, Exposed walks the reader through important legal terms and concepts and offers practical risk management advice.
While a lawsuit against your nonprofit may not be your biggest worry (yet!), reading Exposed will help you better understand the exposures facing your nonprofit. And following up on the advice in the book may help you get a better night’s sleep.
While this new book is not a substitute for a formal legal education or competent in-house or outside counsel, it will help put you at ease the next time you’re working with legal counsel on any issue for which your nonprofit might be exposed to legal claims.
In addition to chapters on defamation, employment liability, liability issues and the nonprofit board, surviving a lawsuit and intellectual property, EXPOSED features a thought-provoking chapter on exposure to claims alleging abuse of vulnerable clients.
