Local leaders have announced "Tulsa Lawyers for the Arts," a new program that will provide legal assistance and educational programming to artists and arts organizations in Oklahoma for little to no cost.

What a great idea.  One for which I am very thankful..... Not that I need a lawyer right now but one never knows.  I think I can speak for the art community when I say we are grateful to Tulsa's fine lawyers for their gift to the art community ( and for buying our work :-)  Below is the news release from the Tulsa World.


 


According to a news release, the program draws inspiration from existing programs in other cities and also an effort to encourage local art and music.

Mayor Kathy Taylor said: "Art keeps a community vital and enhances the quality of life. It helps define our culture as a city."

Through the program, artists will be paired with participating attorneys to discuss legal issues and to resolve arts-related disputes outside traditional legal framework, including contracts, copyright and trademark issues, wills, trusts and estates, First Amendment issues, mediation and landlord-tenant issues.
