The Sports and Entertainment Law Society is dedicated to assisting students interested in pursuing careers in the sports and entertainment industries. The society strives to provide students with information on the industry through guest speakers as well as networking opportunities with specialists in the field, and fun interactive activities for members.
In the past we have had speakers from the World Disney Company, Clearplay as well as several sports agents speak. Our approach last year was to divide the academic year into a Sports semester and an Entertainment Semester, but we are trying to broaden our scope as to include a wider area of entertainment law, namely VCR, music, film and gaming, this year and will combine the two industries each semester. We will assume a broader approach to Copyright and Trademark law as it relates to the two industries. You could call us the Soft IP Club 🙂
