Sports and Entertainment Law

Both Sports Law and Entertainment Law examine legal issues that cut across traditional areas of legal practice. 

In addition to a major emphasis on IP law (particularly copyright and trademark law), Entertainment law incorporates both communications law and labor/employment issues. Sports law examines the structure of professional sports, including the interrelationship of leagues, clubs, and individual athletes and their representatives. Antitrust, labor, and contract law principles will be discussed, as will practical aspects of practicing law in the professional sports industry.
