When & Where
Volunteer Lawyers for the Arts
Established in 1969, Volunteer Lawyers for the Arts is the pioneer in arts-related legal aid and educational programs about the legal and business issues that affect artist and arts organizations. VLA believes that individual artists and arts organizations deserve access to dedicated legal representation and advocacy to ensure that their voices are heard and that their interests are protected. VLA also believes that the arts community should understand certain legal and business matters to protect themselves and their work. To achieve these goals, VLA serves the arts community through 4 program areas: Legal Services with MediateArt; Education; Advocacy; and the Art & Law Residency.
Our largest program, the VLA Legal Services Department, offers counseling and assistance to the entire arts community as well as our signature service of pro bono legal representation to low-income artists and nonprofit arts and cultural organizations. All of VLA’s other programs are open to the entire creative community as well as the lawyers and law students VLA trains to serve the arts community. As the first arts-related legal aid organization, VLA is the model for similar organizations around the world.
