Business Law Training: What Lawyers Serving on Non-Profit Boards Need to Know

Office Locations and Webinar

Presentation Overview:

What Lawyers Serving on Non-Profit Boards Need to Know will address the duties and responsibilities of non-profit directors, issue spotting for non-profit organizations, and practical guidance on board service as an attorney (including a discussion of the ethical issues you may face). Topics will include considerations before agreeing to serve on a non-profit board, recommended best practices for board governance, the fiduciary duties and liabilities of directors (including when a lawyer may be subjected to a higher standard as a director), how to recognize and address conflicts of interest, and more. Serving on a non-profit board can be personally and professionally rewarding. We hope this session will reaffirm your commitment or interest in board service, while serving as a reminder of the key issues to remain aware of throughout your term of service.

Who Should Attend?
This seminar is designed for in-house counsel and other interested corporate executives. Clients attending will receive a CLE report at the end of the year for all earned credit.

We will apply for one hour of continuing legal education credit in Florida, Illinois, Indiana, Virginia, and Wisconsin. We will issue a Certificate of Attendance to Arizona attendees as the State Bar of Arizona does not approve or accredit CLE activities for the Mandatory Continuing Legal Education requirement.

If you are member of another jurisdiction that does not honor CLE credit from AZ, FL, IL, IN, VA, or WI, we will be happy to provide the materials needed in order for you to apply for CLE credit. Please contact Donna Key, our CLE Coordinator, at
