About Dana Brakman Reiser

Professor Brakman Reiser joined the BLS faculty in 2001. An expert in the emerging field of the law of nonprofit organizations, she has been at the forefront of research in this area. Her writing focuses on two distinct, but related concerns in nonprofit law: (1) nonprofit accountability and governance; and (2) the role of members and other non-fiduciary constituencies in nonprofit organizations. Professor Brakman Reiser’s most recent article, "Independent Directors in the Independent Sector," will be published in the Fordham Law Review (Fall 2007). The article considers the challenges in defining the concept of an independent director on a nonprofit board and proposes a limited role for this concept in nonprofit law reform. She has also published "Nonprofit Takeovers: Regulating the Market for Mission Control," in the BYU Law Review (2006) and “Enron.org: Why Sarbanes-Oxley Will Not Ensure Comprehensive Nonprofit Accountability,” in the U.C. Davis Law Review (2004). She is a member of the Government Relations Committee of the Nonprofit Coordinating Committee of New York. Before joining the faculty, Professor Brakman Reiser was a Legal Fellow in the Office of the General Counsel of Partners HealthCare System, Inc. and served as a Law Clerk to Judge Bruce Selya of the United States Court of Appeals for the First Circuit. She also was a Note Editor of the Harvard Law Review.
