Center for Art Law

At the crossroads of visual arts and the law.

Visual Artists’ Legal Clinics

Pursuant to the Center for Art Law’s objective of making art law accessible to practicing artists, clinical projects have become a seminal part of its offerings for the art and law community.

Working with volunteer attorneys, arts professionals, and local organizations, the Visual Artists’ Legal Clinics focus on the following areas:

Launched in January 2020, the Visual Artists’ Immigration Clinic is designed to guide emerging visual artists through the process of obtaining a visa to the United States.

The Artist Legacy and Estate Planning Clinic connects artists, estate administrators, attorneys, tax advisors, and other experts to create meaningful and lasting solutions for expanding the art canon and art legacy planning.

Coming in Summer of 2022, the Artist-Dealer Relationships Clinic connects artists, dealers, and attorneys together to forge meaningful relations and provide a platform for artists and dealers to learn about consignment agreements and have their questions on the topic addressed by experts in the field.
