El Paso Lawyers For The Arts
El Paso Museum of Art
Thursday July 1, 2010 at 5:30 p.m.
The El Paso Museum of Art is the sponsor of a program on Thursday, July 1, 2010, at 5:30 p.m., in the El Paso Energy Auditorium of the El Paso Museum of Art to promote the formation of El Paso Lawyers For The Arts. The Federal Bar Association El Paso Chapter are co-sponsors of this program, and 2 hours of Continuing Legal Education credit (CLE) will be applied for and provided to attending lawyers and legal assistants free of charge.
It is envisioned that El Paso Lawyers for the Arts will be a support group formed to educate El Paso attorneys in legal matters relating to artists and fine arts groups, and to be able to provide legal services both professionally and on a pro bono basis to the El Paso community. The Museum desires to promote a greater working dialogue between the El Paso legal and arts communities, and sees the sponsorship of this program as a first step towards that goal.
The speaker for this program is Sergio Munoz Sarmiento. He is a native El Pasoan who received his BA from UTEP, his MFA from the California Institute of Arts, and his JD from Cornell Law School. He is in practice in New York City and is an Adjunct Instructor at the Brooklyn Law School. Mr. Sarmiento is actively engaged in the promotion of professional expertise in the field of art and law and is a frequent speaker to professional groups throughout the country.

- 5:30 – 6:30 p.m. Presentation on Intellectual Property Law and Copyrights (1 hour CLE credit)
- 6:30 – 7:00 p.m. Cocktail Reception/Break provided by El Paso Museum of Art
