Live Q&A: Contracts
5 – 6PM
Laura Levin-Dando, Staff Attorney and Joseph Tedeschi. Board of Directors at Volunteer Lawyers for the Arts of NY
Monday, May 2, 2022 | 5 - 6pm ET
Did you buy a coffee this morning? Contract. Order something online? Contract. Whether you recognize it or not, we all enter into contracts on a daily basis. In the lessons on Contracts on the AWL site, Laura Levin-Dando, Staff Attorney at Volunteer Lawyers for the Arts of NY, demystifies the basics of contracts in approachable terms, highlighting the importance of contracts as business tools, relationship management tools, and insurance for creatives.
This Q&A will cover questions regarding contracts. While consignment forms, licenses, work-for-hire agreements, and photo releases are the most common arts-related contracts, all questions–from the basics to negotiation to the psychology behind contracts–are welcome. Laura and Joseph will not provide specific legal advice, but they will outline best practices and refer attendees to helpful resources.
