The National Center on Philanthropy and the Law (NCPL) was established in 1988 at New York University School of Law (NYU School of Law) to explore a broad range of legal issues affecting the nation's nonprofit sector and to provide an integrated examination of the legal doctrines related to the activities of charitable organizations.
The NCPL's goals of increasing the knowledge of students, faculty, scholars, attorneys, and nonprofit organizations worldwide in the area of law and philanthropy and improving the practice of law in this field are realized through the following eight core activities: Curriculum, Scholarly Research, Conferences, Library Collection, Bibliography, Fellowships, Placement, and Faculty Development.
