SC Volunteer Lawyers for the Arts

Have you wondered about what steps to take in protecting your work in the age of electronic reproduction, the Internet and social media?

Have you ever gotten into a contract dispute and needed legal advice or needed help in interpreting or drafting a contract?

Would you like to incorporate a nonprofit in order to protect yourself and other board members from liability?

Are you uncertain about your existing legal documents?

If you answered YES to one or more of these questions, then join us and learn about a new legal service being offered to eligible artists and nonprofit organizations.

S.C. Volunteer Lawyers for the Arts (SCVLA) is a collaboration project of the USC School of Law Pro Bono Program, the USC School of Law Nonprofit Organizations Clinic, the S.C. Arts Commission and the S.C. Bar Pro Bono Program. The purpose of the group is to provide pro bono legal assistance to the arts community in South Carolina.

Partners with the SC Volunteer Lawyers for the Arts will be in Charleston on Wednesday, July 27th to talk about the new service available to artists and art organizations. The meeting will be held in room 309 of the Simons Center for the Arts at the College of Charleston, 54 St. Philip Street. Meetings will be offered two times for your convenience: 3 – 4:30 p.m. and 5:30 – 7 p.m.  For more information and to RSVP, please visit Sponsored by the Charleston Regional Alliance for the Arts and the College of Charleston School of the Arts.
