The Art Law Line
A legal hotline staffed by law students and volunteer attorneys who field calls from artists, arts professionals, and arts organizations seeking assistance about their art-related legal questions. The hotline is staffed Monday to Friday, 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.
VLA receives over 150 new phone calls each day from callers seeking legal information or advice. We ask that you please be patient while waiting for one of our legal interns to return your phone call. Also, since our Art Law Line is staffed by law students during semester periods, our Art Law Line return-call frequency slows down in-between fall and spring semesters. Please be patient.
VLA’s Art Law Line provides the arts community with legal and business advice, referrals, and information about both substantive legal qu estions and VLA’s services. Every year VLA answers over 10,000 telephone calls, letters, and internet inquiries. Through the Art Law Line, low-income artists and nonprofit arts organizations may be scheduled for an in-house consultation with a VLA staff attorney.
The Art Law Line is also an important vehicle for informing the public regarding VLA membership opportunities, course offerings and other services.
