Wicklow PPN Submission to The Law Reform Commission Consultation on the Liability of Clubs, Societies andother Unincorporated Associations
Based on what we have heard from our member groups, discussions with the Law Reform Commission and other PPNs we have prepared a submission to this Consultation which
raises important questions as to how regulators and individuals can enforce legal obligations and, if necessary, sue unincorporated associations. It also explores the potential legal consequences, including personal liability, for individuals involved in non-profit unincorporated associations.
The term “unincorporated association” is used to describe a category of voluntary non-profit associations, clubs, societies and other groups of persons who associate together in pursuit of one, or more, stated non-commercial lawful purposes, and that Irish law does not currently regard as having a legal personality that is separate and distinct from its members.
