Maine Volunteer Lawyers for the Arts is excited to announce a new opportunity for artists and arts organizations seeking help with law-related questions and issues.
During August 6th's First Friday Art Walk, we will be hosting a drop-in clinic at our office in the Constellation Gallery at 511 Congress Street from 5:30-7 PM.
Interested artists and arts organizations will be able to spend 15 minutes speaking with a Maine VLA volunteer about a law-related issue of concern to them. Depending on the issue, the Maine VLA volunteer may point the artist or arts organization in the right direction to find an answer on their own, or assist in arranging for a volunteer lawyer to get involved. Appointments will be made on a first come, first serve basis, starting at 5 PM.
Maine VLA does not provide legal advice, and is not a law firm. We help connect artists and arts organizations with information and resources, which in some cases includes assisting in arranging for the artists or arts organizations to obtain legal advice, at a later date, from a volunteer lawyer.
