Salt Lake City – The law firm Dorsey & Whitney LLP and The Community Foundation of Utah held their second annual legal clinic for Utah Nonprofit Organizations at the law firm’s downtown Salt Lake City offices. The event is designed to give nonprofits throughout the state an opportunity to receive legal education at no cost.
“Utah has a robust nonprofit community that contributes so much to our state,” said Layne Smith, a partner at Dorsey & Whitney. “The clinic has become very popular in a short amount of time, with attendance nearly doubling since our first event just last year.”
More than 70 local nonprofits took advantage of the clinic. The event consisted of a meet-and-greet breakfast followed by three 40-minute breakout sessions, where nonprofits had the opportunity to attend presentations on corporate governance and fiduciary duties, real estate, negotiating commercial contracts, cyber security, financial distress and much more.
“Nonprofit organizations are often stretched thin, trying to serve their communities and constituents on limited resources and with limited staff,” said Fraser Nelson, executive director of The Community Foundation of Utah. “The education we receive from the attorneys at Dorsey & Whitney on such critical topics such as employment law, fiduciary duties, dispute resolution and other legal issues is so very helpful.”
