Special Issue: Charity Law in the Pacific Rim. The legal meaning of charity has its origins in an English statute passed in October of 1601 and repealed over a century ago. This statute continues to have a profound influence on the law in England and its former colonies in the Pacific Rim. It was fitting in October 2001 to bring together a small group of scholars and practitioners from around the world to discuss the law of charity at the Centre of Philanthropy and Nonprofit Studies, Queensland University of Technology. In the months prior to the conference several jurisdictions including Australia, New Zealand, Canada, and the United Kingdom were examining the utility of their continued reliance on a common law definition of charity. The presence at the conference of representatives from such inquiries allowed a unique exchange of view to occur.
