Dedicated to supporting the arts in the state of Washington since 1976.


Startup Stock PhotosWLA sponsors legal clinics where artists and arts professionals are welcome to make 30-minute appointments to meet with attorneys who specialize in arts and entertainment law. They may discuss topics, including contract review, copyright, trademark and other intellectual property issues.

If you are an attorney experienced in the arts and would like to volunteer at the Clinic, please contact WLA by emailing us at Clinic volunteers are generally asked to have 3-5 years experience practicing in IP. We now carry malpractice insurance that covers our clinic volunteers.
