Learn about PACs, Super PACs and more in upcoming nonprofit law lecture

The Mandel Center for Nonprofit Organizations and the School of Law will sponsor the Norman A. Sugarman Memorial Lecture in Nonprofit Law April 19. Ellen Aprill, a law professor and the John E. Anderson Chair in Tax Law at Loyola Law School in Los Angeles, will lead the lecture, titled “Political Activities of Exempt Organizations: Dos and Don’ts During an Election Cycle.”

Aprill will evaluate the controversy surrounding PACs, Super PACs and section 501(c)(4) organizations in the current presidential campaign. After describing the rules that now govern the political activities of section 527 organizations and section 501(c)(4) organizations as well as other section 501(c) organizations, she will describe the activities of some specific organizations, to the extent public information is available, and evaluate proposed changes to the law.

The free, public talk will be held April 19, 4:30-5:30 p.m., in School of Law Room 157. A reception will follow the lecture.
