Charity Law and Executive Pay

Reports of high executive pay, bonuses and severance packages frequently arouse public interest and, in many cases, condemnation. When those reports relate to the charity sector, public trust and confidence are diminished. This session asks what charity law and regulation have to say on the subject and then how that law is, or should be, applied to universities: a significant section of the charity sector (though not widely recognised as such) and one where publicised instances of high pay have drawn widespread and fierce criticism, not least from politicians.
