Jonathan Fowles discusses Children’s Investment Fund Foundation (CIFF) (UK) v Attorney-General for Trusts & Trustees

Jonathan Fowles discusses the recent Supreme Court judgment in Children’s Investment Fund Foundation (CIFF) (UK) v Attorney-General in an article for Trusts & Trustees. The article “Making an exception: the general superintendence of all charitable uses” looks at whether the Supreme Court's endorsement of the exceptional, public nature of charities had proper place in its reasoning. In particular, Jonathan considers how the imposition of fiduciary duties on members of charitable companies fits into the development of charity law as applied to corporate entities, and whether Lady Arden JSC's alternative analysis of jurisdiction, referring to the court's special jurisdiction over charities, can be justified.
