LL.M. Specialization in Media, Entertainment, Technology, and Sports Law and Policy

The Specialization in Media, Entertainment, Technology, and Sports Law and Policy’s LL.M. curriculum involves completion of four courses arranged in two tiers. While the tiers are roughly progressive (in that, for example, basic copyright and entertainment law are helpful for the more advanced courses), generally the courses below may be taken concurrently (subject to a given instructor’s prerequisite requirements in specific instances). The mandatory courses of the Introductory A-Tier are intended to present the fundamental principles and practices of contemporary entertainment law, and they cover copyright protection, and various transactional doctrines. The A-Tier courses typically serve as a gateway to the more specialized electives that populate the B-Tier, where students may choose to focus more narrowly on their particular professional interests in entertainment law.


A minimum average GPA not lower than a B- will be required in Specialization courses for final transcript certification of satisfactory Specialization completion. Students who have completed the Specialization requirements may elect, at their option, to have the certification noted on their transcript. That election cannot be changed after the student has been graduated. Note also that specific course offerings vary from year to year.
