Casenote considers meaning and impact of ruling of High Court in Hanchett Stamford v HM A.G. The decision of Mr Justice Lewison in Hanchett-Stamford v HM Attorney General and Dr William Johnston Jordan1 provides us with a useful analysis of the legal principles relating to the thorny issues of: (i) how unincorporated associations hold property; (ii) the applicability of the law of charities to unincorporated associations and (iii) the property rights of a declining membership upon the dissolution of such associations.
