Know Your Rights: Contracts and Negotiation

Wednesday, March 1, 2017 at 3:00 pm to 4:00 pm

Anna-Maria and Stephen Kellen Auditorium (Room N101), Sheila C. Johnson Design Center 66 Fifth Avenue New York, NY 10003

This lecture, the second in a three-part series presented by the School of Art, Media and Technology, will introduce students to key legal issues that designers, photographers and artists face, provides a legal overview of contract law and negotiation strategies that designers, photographers and artists might encounter. Understanding basic contract concepts is a key tenet of any successful art or design practice. Students will learn how contracts are formed, when contracts can be oral and when they must be written, how to read contracts and how to distinguish between typical designer friendly and unfriendly clauses. Prior legal experience is not a pre-requisite for this lecture.
