Our Legal Library

Our Legal Library is like having a legal guide at your fingertips. It gives you the tools and resources you need to understand, and more importantly, take action on legal aspects of your business.

The Legal Library is your creative business’ go-to legal toolbox for building a legally protected business—and it’s only available to members of the artist’s Courtyard.

Best of all, each resource is designed especially for artists, makers, and creative businesses by an attorney who gets what you do and all the hats you are juggling.
