The Federation will be trialing a new service in 2017. The provision of legal advice to members of the Federation.

The Federation has purchased adown-by-law-99a3ee58911_500x735 year’s subscription to the Arts Law Centre of Australia.

The Arts Law Centre of Australia has two services: (1) the Telephone Legal Advice and (2) the Document Review Service.

Under the Telephone Legal Advice, a lawyer gives general legal advice without reviewing any documents. The estimated turn-around time is 2-3 weeks.

Under the Document Review Service, a lawyer gives specific legal advice after reviewing your documents (e.g. contracts). The estimated turn-around time is 4 weeks.

Accessing the legal advice must be done through the Federation. If you want to use this service, please contact us.
