Overview

As a lawyer, it's likely that you've been asked to serve on a non-profit board (or will be asked soon). Lawyers can bring valuable skills to board service and offer a different perspective based on their experience in issue spotting and risk management. However, it's important that you and the non-profit organization are on the same page regarding your obligations as a board member and how those obligations differ from serving as legal counsel to the organization.

Join Katherine Morgan Breslin, Esq., an attorney focusing on tax-exempt and non-profit organizations, for a discussion regarding the role of lawyers on non-profit boards.
