Let’s Go Legal Overview

In Let’s Go Legal, you’ll learn how your organization is like a car. For example, you need to register it with the state. When you drive on federal roads, you have to follow additional rules. Fundraising is like the fuel that moves your car forward. Your employees, the people in your car, matter. And your intellectual property is special, like the look and feel of your car.

Let’s Go Legal is comprised of five chapters:

  1. State Law
  2. Federal Law
  3. Fundraising
  4. Employment
  5. Intellectual Property
