In this workshop, Sign Here, Please: Contract Law Basics for Artists and the Lawyers that Represent Them, transactional and art lawyer Alison Ivey will walk you through the basics of contract law including an explanation of fundamental contract terms and an overview of key principals surrounding contract formation and enforcement.
