Supporting Stories: Legal Guidance for Oral History Projects

Join us for an informative program presented by Stephanie "Cole" Adams, the attorney for CDLC's Ask the Lawyer service. 

Oral histories are some of the most direct, experience-based components of culture, and each project has unique challenges and legal considerations.  Is there an approach that can use the law to serve the project?  Organized to cohere with the Oral History Association's "Statement of Ethics," this session will cover not only issues like image release, copyright, and project ownership, but also the legal considerations at each phase of project development: concept building, interview methods, grant application and contracts, partnership and collaboration agreements, insurance and employment/independent contractor issues. Your questions are welcome!

Location is Schenectady County Public Library, Central Library, 99 Clinton St, Schenectady NY 

Participants may submit questions for the presenter by using the box on the registration form or emailing the questions to Susan D'Entremont at  Questions must be submitted by May 30, 2019 to give the presenter time to research the best answer.
