What is Georgia Lawyers for the Arts?
Georgia Lawyers for the Arts (GLA) is a nonprofit organization that provides legal assistance and educational programming to artists and arts organizations in Georgia.
GLA, through our full schedule of educational seminars and classes; our resource library, and our network of over 700 volunteer and member attorneys, provides legal assistance to musicians, songwriters, photographers, filmmakers, painters, poets, graphic designers, actors, theatre companies, dance troupes, museums and artists from many other disciplines.
In order to receive assistance, artists and arts organizations must call GLA at 404-873-3911 to set up an intake so that we may determine the best way to assist you based on the specific circumstances of your situation.
For more information on our upcoming seminars and classes, please visit our calendar or call the office for further information.
In 2014 GLA decided to expand its services, working with the USPTO to establish the Georgia PATENTS program. Georgia PATENTS seeks to help solo inventors, non-profits, and small businesses find patent agents and attorneys to help file patents on a pro bono basis.
