Georgia Lawyers for the Arts
Who We Are
Georgia Lawyers for the Arts (GLA) is a nonprofit organization that provides legal assistance and education to artists and arts organizations of Georgia. GLA, through its network of volunteer and member attorneys, provides legal assistance to musicians, songwriters, photographers, filmmakers, painters, graphic designers, actors and artists from many other disciplines.
In addition to providing pro bono legal services to limited-income artists and nonprofit arts organizations with budgets under $650,000, GLA makes referrals to experienced attorneys for artists that can afford to pay for such services. In an effort to educate artists about their legal rights and responsibilities, GLA conducts 50-60 educational seminars and workshops for artists each year on numerous legal and business-related topics.
GLA also has an extensive resource library (over 250 titles as well as sample contracts, copyright forms and other resources). GLA has frequent free legal clinics where artists can come meet with volunteer attorneys to discuss various issues and legal questions. Lastly, GLA provides free or low-cost mediation services as a means of resolving artists' legal disputes. Each year GLA serves thousands of artists and arts organizations in Georgia and provides a critical link between members of the legal and the arts communities. .For Directions, Click Here (MapQuest.com)
