Andrea Chung on panel in San Diego 4.3.19

California Lawyers for the Arts is proud to present our first annual San Diego based symposium in collaboration with Thomas Jefferson School of Law’s Public Interest Law Foundation:

This inaugural event will examine the intersection of art praxis and legal issues with a focus on the border region. We invite artists, lawyers, scholars, and students to explore, complicate, and expand our understandings of how art and law intermingle in form, ownership, exhibition and dissemination, as well as the public’s relationship to art and art institutions through a legal lens.

Join us for a full day of thought-provoking panels from legal and art professionals with topics ranging from transborder art and advocacy, citizenship and asylum, binational artistic enterprises, and more!


Receive 1:1 legal advice from an attorney during the event

Since 1974, California Lawyers for the Arts works to strengthen the arts for the benefit of communities throughout California through educational workshops and events, as well as our Lawyer Referral Service, a free and low cost legal service for artists.

THE THOMAS JEFFERSON SCHOOL OF LAW PUBLIC INTEREST LAW FOUNDATION (PILF) is a member of Equal Justice Works. The public interest law organization is a registered non-profit 501(c)(3) and is composed of law students and alumni who are dedicated to raising awareness among people in the law profession about the value of making a commitment to public service legal work. Public Interest Law provides legal representation to people, groups, or individuals that are historically underrepresented in the legal system and strives to create more access to justice for all.

This event is a part of California’s Arts, Culture & Creativity Month (ACCM) in April. For more info:
