Background of LCA
LCA is a nonprofit organization that works to foster a vibrant arts community by providing artists and arts organizations with critical legal services and educational programs that would otherwise be out of their financial reach.

They come to us for a similarly broad range of legal services that we provide by connecting our clients with private attorneys who offer their services for free.
We are the only legal services organization in the State of Illinois whose mission is directed entirely to fulfilling the legal needs of the arts community. We have been in business for over 44 years, and are supported by public and private foundations, companies, law firms and many individuals.
