First paragraph: Debates in Charity Law offers invaluable insights into contemporary debates about the regulation of charities. It is recommended reading for scholars, students and practitioners looking for an extensive collection of topics in charity law. It is equally recommended to all those lawyers and non-profit scholars who wish to engage for the first time with this niche area of law. In fact, charity law is neither widely researched nor extensively taught across law schools in the UK and abroad. The Charity Law and Policy Unit at the University of Liverpool, UK, to which John Picton and Jennifer Sigafoos belong, represents a positive exception to this trend. The two Liverpudlian academics, editors of this excellent volume, bring together a series of contributions from their colleagues at the University of Liverpool and well-established charity lawyers and other scholars based in different jurisdictions.
