How to create an Association loi 1901

In order to make membership more accessible to our colleagues in France, the APUAF, in consultation with local legal counsel, has put together a document on how to create an "Association loi 1901." It constitutes one of the simplest and most cost-effective legal statuses for American study abroad programs operating in France. Our hope is to facilitate the process of establishing a legal entity for those US institutions who would like to set up a program in France. The suggestions and the sample bylaws are intended for reference only and cannot be substituted for proper legal counsel, but can help provide documentation for your home institutions on the procedure and advantages of creating a legal entity in France.
