The diversity and complexity of the legal issues that can arise in the course of the activities of a club, society or association present numerous questions for those advising and managing those bodies for which they need guidance. Problems range from the interpretation of rules to anti-discrimination legislation. Legal issues can span alcohol licensing, company law, employment law, expulsion procedures, litigation, meetings, promotions of lotteries, property law, charities law and taxation.
Ashton and Reid on Clubs and Associations is the definitive guide to the legal framework within which clubs, societies and associations operate, bringing together the various strands of law to provide practical legal advice for these bodies, their advisers and officers.
The third edition is fully updated to cover important new case law as well as the plethora of recent legislation affecting, for example, employment law, landlord and tenant law, licensing law and tax.
The work includes a full set of model rules as well as other useful material in the Appendices.
