     Clinic
                                        Clinics are held twice a month on Wednesday evenings,
                                        between 5:00 PM and 7:30 PM. Volunteer lawyers are scheduled
                                        on a rotation, based on monthly availability. Each clinic consists of
                                        pre-scheduled, 30-minute, summary advice appointments with
                                        individual artists or arts organizations. Lawyers provide summary
                                        advice and write a brief summary of the advice given.
                                        NOTE: To provide summary advice, lawyers must be called to the
                                        Bar for at least 3 year and have at least 2 years of relevant
                                        experience in arts, entertainment, business or intellectual property
                                        law.

  Workshops and ALO Events             The ALO encourages dialogue between the legal and artistic
                                        communities through workshops, forums, and conferences.
                                        Lawyers can help out in a variety of areas, including legal research
                                        and writing; speaking; event planning; marketing; and fundraising.


  Added to Lawyer Referral List        Clients with legal matters that are too complex to be addressed by
                                        the ALO may be provided with a list of lawyers to contact on their
                                        own.
