California Lawyers for the Arts

California Lawyers for the Arts (CLA) is a statewide nonprofit service organization, providing educational programs, lawyer referrals, dispute resolution services, advocacy and other resources for artists and arts organizations. Founded in 1974 by lawyers and artists, its programs and services are designed to help artists understand and apply legal concepts. CLA offers self-help legal workshops in the San Francisco and San Jose Bay Area, Santa Monica/Los Angeles Area and Sacramento. Artists and arts organizations serve as agents of democratic involvement, innovation, and positive social change, and the growth of an empowered arts sector is essential to healthy communities. The goal of CLA s educational programs is to provide affordable, quality legal and business educational workshops and seminars to empower artists throughout California at the earliest, stages of their careers and to offer continuing education throughout their working lives as artists. CLA workshops, seminars and training programs provide substantive legal and business information for the arts and entertainment communities. In an environment of reduced resources for the arts and rapidly escalating living expenses, artists need a working knowledge of the legal and business aspects of their profession in order to earn a living. CLA has established itself as an excellent legal educational resource with affordable programs.
