At UCLA Law, we position students for successful careers as lawyers, policymakers and leaders in the motion picture, television, music and sports industries. Through our renowned Ziffren Institute for Media, Entertainment, Technology and Sports Law, students gain a solid grounding in the customs, theories and policy issues that underly entertainment law practice. They study with the nation’s foremost entertainment lawyers and enjoy a wealth of educational, mentorship and employment opportunities.
Entertainment law students can elect to complete a specialization in the program or to pursue select courses and experiential offerings. These include the innovative Documentary Film Legal Clinic, where rising documentarians and artists receive legal assistance that is vital to bringing their visions to the screen. The UCLA Entertainment Law Review tackles issues from new media law to sports law. And our flagship annual event, the UCLA Entertainment Symposium, brings together preeminent executives, agents, managers, producers and entertainment attorneys to discuss the major issues of the day.
