Unincorporated Non-Profit Associations in Contract: A Need for Reform
AbstractThe law relating to unincorporated non-profit associations has not developed with any consistency. This has resulted in a morass of legal theory which desperately fails to satisfy the need for clarity in this area. The author discusses the prevailing theories relating to the legal status of unincorporated non-profit associations. He concludes by recommending statutory intervention as the means of reform that will best alleviate the present inconsistencies in the law.
