Upcoming Events.

GLA conducts ongoing Seminars open to the public, members, and attorneys.  We also plan Special Events throughout the year.

501(c)(3) Seminar (Monthly) Register

A three to four hour, user-friendly seminar to instruct parties interested in launching nonprofit entities presented by John Eaton. Cost is $120 for GLA members ($10 for additional member guests), $150 for non-members.

Eaton has facilitated this session monthly for Georgia Lawyers for the Arts since 1982 and in recent years for the Foundation Center of Atlanta. Many local attorneys attend these sessions. The primary purpose of the session is to place participants in a knowledgeable posture on the legal, filing, and reporting requirements for nonprofit organizations as well as establishing best nonprofit organizational practices from inception. Since 9-11, the IRS raised the bar substantially in acquiring tax-exempt status. The growth in our knowledge on these issues has been commensurate with IRS regulatory and reporting evolution in the field.

Patents 101 – FREE SEMINAR Register

Join us for an in-depth look at the U.S. patent system on June 14 from 11:30 AM – 1:30 PM. A patent is a right granted by the U.S. government to the owner of an invention that is useful, novel, and non-obvious over the prior art.

The owner of a U.S. patent may exclude others from practicing the invention for about 20 years after the filing date of the application which gave rise to the patent. We will discuss what makes an invention “patentable”, as well as provide an overview of the patent application process. Come with questions!

Presented by: Sharad Bijanki, Patent Attorney with Hill, Kertscher & Wharton, LLP
