CR Clinic @ University of Michigan’s Taubman College of Architecture
April 6, 2012 – Creative Rights partnered with artist and professor of architecture Catie Newell to offer a unique opportunity to students in Catie’s master of architecture thesis course at the University of Michigan’s Taubman College. Creative Rights, and its team of law student attorneys, delivered presentations on contracts, property torts, and copyright in architecture. After hearing Catie’s students give a brief description of their projects, CR law student attorneys paired off and spent the next hour and a half delving into the details of each project. CR law student attorneys pointed out scenarios that could increase liability and provided legal information pertaining to trespass, vandalism, contracts, ownership vs. possession, adverse possession, and copyright.
