Art Law Clinic

MdVLA holds Art Law Clinics 12 times yearly.

Artists may bring any short-form legal issue to the clinic where they will have the chance to meet with an attorney for half an hour. Issues that are too complex will be referred to MdVLA’s pro bono referral system and have to meet income requirements.

The next Art Law Clinic takes place from 1 to 4 pm on Saturday April 12 at MdVLA, 1500 Union Ave., Baltimore MD 21211. Email for an appointment or simply drop in. And for our Western Maryland friends, MdVLA presents Copyright Basics for Artists from noon to 1 on April 5 with MdVLA volunteer attorney Hank Abromson. Contact Mary Anne Burke, for more info. Location is Washington County Museum of Fine Arts,Bowman Gallery, 401 Museum Drive, Hagerstown, MD 21741.

The Spring 2014 MdVLA Newsletter is a great read.

About Maryland Volunteer Lawyers for the Arts:

Our mission is to provide high-quality legal services to low-income artists and non-profit arts organizations. Our lawyers take on cases for artists like they would any other client, subject to all of the ethical and other requirements of any attorney-client relationship. We want to help you overcome legal barriers that limit your ability to create, distribute or profit from your creativity. We help artists of all stripes—painters, sculptors, musicians, filmmakers, and writers—with a range of arts-related issues, like securing a federal copyright registration, choosing a legal entity type and forming that entity, and negotiating a contract

As a Sr. Writer at T. Rowe Price, I work with a group of the best copywriters around. We belong to the broader creative team within Enterprise Creative, a part of Corporate Marketing Services. _____________________________________________ A long and winding road: My path to T. Rowe Price was more twisted than Fidelity’s green line. With scholarship in hand, I left Kansas at 18 to study theatre in New York. When my soap opera paychecks stopped coming from CBS and started coming from the show’s sponsor, Proctor & Gamble, I discovered the power of advertising and switched careers. Over the years I’ve owned an ad agency in San Francisco; worked for Norman Lear on All in the Family, Good Times, Sanford and Son, and the rest of his hit shows; and as a member of Directors Guild of America, I directed Desi Arnaz in his last television appearance— we remained friends until his death. In 1988 I began freelancing full time didn’t look back. In January 2012 my rep at Boss Group called and said, “I know you don’t want to commute and writing for the financial industry isn’t high on your wish list, but I have a gig with T. Rowe Price in Owings Mills…” I was a contractor for eight months, drank the corporate Kool-Aid, became a TRP associate that August, and today I find myself smiling more often than not.
