Modrall Sperling Shareholder Roberta Cooper Ramo was a featured speaker at a symposium highlighting the Restatement of the Law, Charitable Nonprofit Organizations, held at UCLA on September 30 and October 1, 2022.

The symposium brought together a group of about 40 leading academics and nonprofit lawyers, as well as regulators from Attorney General’s Offices in California, Texas, New York, and Pennsylvania. It was sponsored by the American Law Institute (ALI), the UCLA School of Law Lowell Milken Institute for Business Law & Policy, the UCLA School of Law Program on Philanthropy and Nonprofits, and the UCLA Law Review.

Roberta Cooper Ramo, ALI Council Member and President Emeritus, discussed the Restatement process and the importance of the Nonprofits project in particular as a resource for state regulators and state courts, who in the coming years may increasingly be asked to work out questions about the role of nonprofit organizations in society.
