Volunteer Lawyers for the Arts Pro Bono Awards
I went to a cocktail party at a very swanky art gallery in Chelsea to celebrate the achievements of lawyers working pro bono for artists and the arts through Volunteer Lawyers for the Arts.
The room was full of celebrity lawyers, friends, adversaries, former adversaries and artists who benefit from the programs.
If you have an interest in being trained for pro bono projects or in participating, visit http://www.vla.org/. Special thanks to Sergio Munoz Sarmiento who runs the excellent Clancco blog which explores the intersection of law and fine art.
