WHO ARE WE?

Lawyers for the Arts is a collaboration between The Dauphin County Bar Association, Widener University of Law, and the MakeSpace Arts Collective.

We offer the only legal-assistance program designed for artists between Philadelphia and Pittsburgh. Do you make things? Do you want those things to be stable, healthy and thriving? This may be very interesting for you:

Lawyers for the Arts will pair qualifying artists and arts organizations of limited means with experienced attorneys providing pro bono representation. 

Lawyers for the Arts also presents members of the community with information about common legal issues that artists encounter, including issues involving intellectual property, contracts, sales, business formation, landlord-tenant law, and taxes, among other things. These programs will help artists identify and avoid legal risks when possible and will serve to raise awareness of the resources available from the DCBA and other organizations when legal representation is needed.
