Author: Dan Manier


Notre Dame Associate Professor of Law Lloyd Hitoshi Mayer was elected to sit on the National Center on Philanthropy and the Law’s (NCPL) Board of Advisors. The NCPL, established 20 years ago, is one of the most prestigious research centers on philanthropy in the nation. The Board of Advisors includes both leading academics and non-academic leaders in the field.

The NCPL was established at New York University School of Law to explore a broad range of legal issues affecting the nation’s nonprofit sector and to provide an integrated examination of the legal doctrines related to the activities of charitable organizations. The Center is developing a unified field of study that provides central focus and leadership to curriculum development, scholarly research, conferences, and career development in the nonprofit sector. This approach is intended to add to and improve the overall quality of education and scholarship among law students, legal scholars, nonprofit organizations, practicing attorneys, judges, executives, administrators, and other professionals in the field.
