    Abstract

    Charity law has rapidly become one of the fastest growing areas of interest to solicitors and accountants. Legislation implemented in 1992 in the form of the Law Reform (Miscellaneous Provisions) (Scotland) Act 1990 and the Charities Accounts (Scotland) Regulations 1992 introduced important provisions for the regulation of charities in Scotland. The lack of a comprehensive guide to the various aspects of the law relating to charities in Scotland has led to confusion and misunderstanding by charity administrators and their professional advisors. This book is the first to rectify the situation, by giving a clear description of the law pertaining to charities operating in Scotland. It also provides essential legal guidelines for Scotland's charity administrators, and will also greatly assist professional bodies in offering appropriate and accurate advice to their clients. All the contributors are specialists in this area and include three solicitors with practical experience of charity law and a charity accountant.
