About Us

Welcome to Artists’ Legal Advice Services, also known as ALAS. We provide free summary legal advice to artists living in Ontario, Canada. Our offices are located in downtown Toronto. For more than a decade, ALAS has been helping artists, actors, musicians, dancers, writers, and filmmakers address their legal problems. Issues typically dealt with include contracts, defamation, copyright, trademarks and royalties or other payments.

ALAS is operated by a collection of lawyers and volunteer law students from the University of Toronto who generously donate their time to help provide advice to those who may not be able to access more expensive alternatives. The clinic serves as an excellent first-step for creators wishing to understand their legal rights or deal with specific problems, but are unsure how to proceed.
