Drafting of the Restatement of the Law, Charitable Nonprofit Organizations, at ALI

I recently returned from an American Law Institute Advisers meeting regarding the drafting of the Restatement of the Law, Charitable Nonprofit Organizations, held at ALI headquarters in Philadelphia. The project was originally a statement of principles of nonprofit law but has been converted to a traditional restatement. Much good work went into the drafting of the Principles, but it was eventually determined that a traditional Restatement would serve better than a statement of principles. The work to date on the Principles will be converted and adapted for restatement use. The project has two reporters and an associate reporter and the usual advisers and member consultative group.
