21st Century Legal Career Series Vol 13 - Tricks of the Trade (& Professional) Associations
Richard L. Hermann, 2017.
Almost 1.5 million nonprofits are registered with the Internal Revenue Service. Associations do not come immediately to mind when you encounter the term “nonprofit.”
They should, because many of them share four features that should be of interest to every attorney: (1.) They have substantial assets (more than $2 trillion in the aggregate); (2.)They employ tens of thousands of attorneys; (3.)You can find these attorneys in places other than just the in-house counsel office; and (4)They are corporations. Consequently, they share many of the structural features of their for-profit counterparts.
Lawyers who work for their in-house counsel offices have many of the same responsibilities as their commercial company brethren. Like commercial corporations, associations also hire lawyers for a variety of JD Advantage jobs.
