Artists’ Legal Information Society

Artists' Legal Information Society (ALIS)

The Artists’ Legal Information Society (ALIS) is a non-profit society whose mission is to provide free legal information to artists in the Atlantic provinces. We achieve this in three manners:

  1. through our legal aid clinic where clients have the opportunity to meet with one of our volunteer lawyers for a free half hour consultation;
  2. through our workshops and presentations which we host in conjunction with various arts organizations on different legal topics of interest to artists; and
  3. through our legal information database hosted on our website as well as our plain language guides which can be downloaded from our website.

We work with artists of all kinds and our main areas of assistance include contracts, defamation, copyright, trademarks, royalties, and more.
