Oversight & Regulation of Charitable Organizations
State Attorney General Oversight and Regulation of Charitable Organizations
On February 24 and 25, 2006, the National State Attorneys General Program at Columbia Law School presented the "State Attorney General Oversight and Regulation of Charitable Organizations" symposium. This invitation-only conference provided an opportunity for frank discussions among state attorneys general, leading academics, and representatives of significant charities, foundations, non-governmental organizations, and private law firms. Thirty-nine Attorney General Offices were represented, fifteen by their Attorney General.
Discussion concerned three specific problems: authority and role of the Attorney General, governance and fiduciary duties, and divergent views on oversight mechanisms.
