Providing Free Legal Education Seminars & Workshops to Artists of All Disciplines

About the Project

Through its network of more than 1,000 volunteer attorneys and artist panelists, GLA will provide free legal seminars to musicians, songwriters, photographers, sculptors, dancers, actors, filmmakers, painters, graphic designers, and artists from many other disciplines through the provision of educational seminars, clinics, and workshops. With your donation, GLA will conduct 50 FREE legal educational seminars and workshops for artists and arts organizations throughout the year on numerous legal and business-related topics. All Metro-Atlanta creatives who need legal assistance with regard to their artistic endeavors or arts organizations will be eligible to attend our weekly seminars free of charge.
 

As part of this Project, GLA will host four seminars and workshops each month. These seminars are directed toward artists and attorneys of every medium, from street buskers to actors, on a variety of topics, 
such as copyright basics, contracts, and financial planning. Past donations have enabled GLA host more seminars and include narrowly-tailored workshops for specific disciplines. For example: "Music Licensing for Film," "First Amendment for Street Artists," "Patent Prosecution: Responding to Office Actions," "Music Law in the Digital Age," and “How to Negotiate with Galleries." GLA's FREE legal education seminars are open to all Atlanta artists and will engender a strong arts community and create a stronger local economy by enabling an understanding of legal rights.
