“The music industry is a multifaceted monster. To the outsider, it appears casual and creative. The reality: Strip down the glamour and it’s a bundle of complex elements in which each module impacts the industry in a different way. Entertainment attorneys, by necessity, must understand each component in extreme detail. “Details” from a classroom perspective can often become boring, translating into students missing the core lesson completely.”

“In this course, we will explore broad aspects of entertainment law, but will do so in a practical, interactive, and entertaining way that keeps students engaged. More importantly, we will analyze how and why entertainment attorneys must perform differently in today’s industry and why it’s crucial to remain creative and cross-pollinate with a variety of industry professionals (e.g. A&R, publishers, songwriters, artists, etc).”
