Arts Sector Legal Resources

Arts Wisconsin, as the state’s arts service, advocacy and development organization, provides legal information, partnerships and connections for Wisconsin artists, performers, nonprofit and for-profit businesses, and other creative entrepreneurs.  Wisconsin does not have a separate statewide Volunteer Lawyers for the Arts organization.

Arts Wisconsin partners with the State Bar’s Pro Bono program to seek pro bono legal assistance.  We make every effort to find representation, although the State Bar doesn’t guarantee assistance. To apply for this program, send an email to info@artswisconsin.org with the following info:

  • the kind of assistance you are seeking (up to three descriptive paragraphs) with relevant background info
  • name and contact info (address, phone, email).
