Institute seeks legal volunteers to update codes of practice
The Institute of Fundraising has invited charity lawyers to volunteer for its Legal Review Committee, which aims to ensure that the institute's Codes of Fundraising Practice remain well interpreted and up to date.
“Legal requirements in the codes are identified by a must command,” said Megan Pacey, director of policy and campaigns at the institute. “The aim of the committee is to ensure that these musts are still correct and that any new regulations are added to the codes.”
The committee will meet once every six weeks to review three of the 26 codes per meeting. The institute will act as the committee secretary and a solicitor and a member of the institute’s Standards Committee will act as chair.
The institute is looking for applications from in-house charity lawyers, solicitors who specialise in the charity law of England and Wales, Scotland or Northern Ireland or anyone with relevant experience.
