Topic: Representing Pro Bono and Low Means Creative Clients
Speaker: Marci Rolnik Walker, Legal Director, Lawyers for the Creative Arts

Come learn the ins and outs on the type of legal issues artists confront and how to manage pro bono representation. What are the pros and cons? Practice skill and network building opportunities? Time commitments? Crafting limited scope engagement letters? How to avoid conflicts and other ethical problems?

Marci Rolnik Walker, Legal Director of Lawyers for the Creative Arts, will explain how to build your art and entertainment knowledge while providing pro bono assistance to creative clients. She'll provide resources to learning materials and the network of Volunteer Lawyers for the Arts and intellectual property resources out there to make it simpler to do limited scope pro bono work.
