The Music Industry Clinic provides free legal services for qualifying musicians and other members of the music industry in the Los Angeles area. MIC provides UCLA Law students with the opportunity to represent clients in real-life music transactional matters under the supervision of experienced music attorneys.  We are currently accepting applicants for services to be provided in the Spring 2018 semester.

Are you a musician, songwriter, producer, independent label owner, or other individual involved in the music industry and not currently represented by an attorney?

Do you have a transactional matter such as a band agreement, management agreement, producer agreement, indie recording agreement, sample clearance, or co-writer agreement that you'd like legal assistance reviewing and negotiating?

If you're interested in applying for representation by MIC, please complete our New Client Application.

Once we've reviewed your application, we'll let you know if your matter meets our criteria and we have the capacity to handle it.  If the answer to those questions is yes, the next step will be an in-person meeting between you and our student practitioners and a supervising attorney.  After that, we will determine whether MIC will represent you going forward.

If you have any questions, you can contact us at mic@law.ucla.edu

Please note:

  • MIC has limited capacity and will not be able to accept all qualified applicants for its services.
  • Before we provide any legal advice, we will need to run a conflicts check and you and we will both need to sign a written engagement letter that sets forth the terms and scope of our representation of you.  Please do not send us any confidential information or material such as musical recordings until an engagement letter is fully signed.
