Volunteer Lawyers for the Arts

Sponsored by the Volunteer Lawyers for the Arts Committee of the Cleveland Metropolitan Bar Association, this program coordinates pro bono legal service in arts related matters to income eligible artists and arts organizations and public law-related education to artists in Northeast Ohio. Volunteers provide brief advice or representation in matters referred by the Committee. Volunteers are also needed to serve as faculty in education programs for artists. Types of legal matters involved include contracts, landlord-tenant, real estate, business, insurance and other transactional legal matters. Arts are broadly defined to include visual arts, music, dance and theater. To request more information on volunteering, click here.
