ALAS is operated by volunteer entertainment and intellectual property lawyers, fellow creators, and 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.
ALAS assists creators in three main ways: our educational sessions, our bi-weekly legal clinic, and our legal database. Our Events each focus on different areas of law and art, and seek to provide creators with guidance directly from industry and legal experts. The ALAS Legal Clinic is offered in downtown Toronto on Tuesdays and Thursday, and provides creators with an opportunity to meet one-on-one with legal practitioners who will offer relevant summary legal information. Our Legal Database includes an ever-growing number of articles and resources that provide summary information on legal topics that may be relevant to you.
