A concise and essential introduction to the legal language and meanings pertaining to nonprofit organizations
The definitions and terminology surrounding the law of tax-exempt organizations are covered in depth in the Bruce R. Hopkins Nonprofit Law Dictionary (PDF), a comprehensive professional reference for the subject matter. Expert author Bruce R. Hopkins, the preeminent authority on nonprofit law in the United States, draws on his more than 45 years of professional experience to provide a comprehensive dictionary reference for attorneys who concentrate their practices on tax law and nonprofit law. The terminology and meanings included in the ebook were drawn from statutes, regulations, and judgements issued by government agencies, court opinions, and forms and instructions issued by the government, with citations being included when they were deemed to be relevant. This book is structured similarly to a traditional dictionary, and it allows for easy access to the information that is of interest to the reader. Additionally, it directs the reader to additional Hopkins guides that offer more in-depth knowledge in the event that it is required.
In the field of law, more than in any other profession, success or failure often hinges on the smallest of particulars.

This book will present you with the most widely accepted interpretations of language that is directly relevant to nonprofit law. As a result, you will be able to feel secure in the level of service that you offer to your customers.
