During the Legal Clinics, art professionals and art organizations can schedule a half hour or one hour appointment to meet face-to-face with one of our volunteer attorneys. A limited number of appointments will be available, and all artists must preregister with The Legal Creative to meet with a volunteer attorney. Registration is free and open to all artists and arts organizations regardless of income, however, consultations are limited to topics relating to the running of an arts business, such as copyright law, trademark law, contract law, and general business formation. Volunteer Accountants from Hill, Barth & King will be available as well for limited topics.
No walk-in appointments will be accepted. Artists can preregister either online at www.legalcreative.org or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. The Legal Creative will handle all aspects of the registration for this service, as well as securing the volunteer attorneys and accountants.
The Legal Creative offers a Volunteer Lawyers for the Arts service to artists and arts organizations throughout the tri-county area. Thus far, our volunteer lawyers have assisted such noteworthy local organizations such as Students Motivated by the Arts (SMARTS) and the Artists of the Rustbelt, as well as countless individual artists reaching as far as Summit and Cuyahoga counties.
