The book contains many helpful and useful precedents to aid with compliance such as: - Specimen Club Rules - Licensing Applications - Specimen Deeds - Specimen Objects Clauses - Lottery Permits - Specimen Employment Contracts. - Also included is a legal checklist that can be referenced easily to check compliance with the more important aspects of legislation affecting Clubs and Associations. It is of great practical use to all involved in running clubs and associations along with their legal advisers.
