IP Section Pro Bono Opportunity with Georgia Lawyers for the Arts

GLA's King Plow Arts Center office

Join fellow members of the IP Law Section of the State Bar of Georgia for a fun, simple and no-continuing-obligations pro bono opportunity on Weds., Feb. 6, 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.

We encourage you to bring along your mentor or mentee for a collaborative pro bono afternoon!

Please email Kelly Bray 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.

In order to assist in the scheduling, we ask that you let us know ASAP if you want to participate in this fabulous opportunity.

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