Legal services for artists are the central focus of VLA’s activities. Our program includes a wide range of services from in-house consultations with VLA’s staff attorneys, pro bono consultations at law firm clinics, placement of VLA qualifying members with volunteer attorneys for complex matters, and mediation services through our MediateArt program.
We now offer online intake forms to request legal assistance on arts-related legal matters. Please click on the right form for you:

Through the Art Law Line, artists can speak to VLA about their legal issues and schedule an in-house consultation with a staff attorney. Law students and volunteers staff our legal hotline Monday to Friday, 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.
We receive multiple phone calls and messages every day, which we try to respond in a timely fashion. Please be patient while awaiting your returned call.
Please note that we can only meet with clients by appointment. Due to limited resources we are unable to meet with clients on a walk-in basis.
