Join fellow members of the State Bar IP Section for a fun, simple, and no-continuing-obligations pro bono opportunity on Tuesday, June 27, at the Georgia Lawyers for the Arts’ legal clinic for low-income artists. You can give from 30 minutes to four hours, at your choice, and you will be able to review materials in advance of the meeting.

This clinic is limited to copyright, trademark, and general contract issues and will be held at GLA’s King Plow Arts Center office from 1-5 p.m. You can volunteer for one 30-minute counseling session or stay for the whole afternoon. GLA artist-member clients are scheduled by the GLA office. GLA will provide a detailed description of each client’s legal issue in the days preceding the clinic. (Note you will not have to draft any contracts or trademark or copyright registrations.) This will be a quick, easy, and gratifying way to satisfy some pro bono hours! You are not committed to any follow-up after the clinic.

Please email Kelly Bray at kellybray@glarts.org (subject: June 27) to volunteer and let us know the amount of time you can give (and specific time-slots, if necessary). Once we have volunteers and GLA coordinates artist-attendees, we will assign cases to each individual or group of lawyers.

(Note that if you are an in-house attorney, GLA’s malpractice insurance covers you for purposes of participation in this legal clinic.)
