Lawyers for the Creative Arts

Volunteer attorneys review claims and often negotiate settlements to collect royalties or otherwise enforce or terminate contracts. LCA prefers that matters settle out of court and offers an arts mediation program. In some cases, it is more strategic to file complaints and proceed through the court system.

Staff attorneys and volunteer mentors provide support as needed.

For more information, or to volunteer, please contact Stacy Streur at sstreur@law-arts.org or 312-649-4111.

About the organization

LCA is the only pro bono legal service organization in Illinois that is expert in all areas of the arts. Now in our 45th year, we have assisted thousands of artists and arts organizations of all kinds with their legal issues. 


The dedicated members of our Board of Directors and our several hundred volunteer attorneys are the soul of LCA. With their assistance, artists of all kinds are free to do what it is they do – bring color, texture and wondrous sights and sounds to all of our lives.

LCA has been called "An angel to the arts," and we are proud of our role in taking care of the legal concerns of artists. Our goal, like yours, is to enable artists to concentrate on creating and delving deep into their hearts to produce the most provocative, most beautiful, most audacious art they can find within themselves.
