Theory meets practice - The Entertainment Law Series 2011-2012

19 September 2011

Entertainment Law has run as an option on the LLB since 1991, and since then the School has developed both a thriving Masters programme and attracted a series of PhD students working in this field. From a research perspective the School has developed a solid research base in the area, coordinated by the Centre for Law, Society and Popular Culture, that includes a number of books and articles, a journal and a book series.

Over the years, the Centre has organized a number of successful seminars and events that have been open to students, staff and other interested parties. This year, to build on this, we have decided to launch a series of events connected loosely under the umbrella of Theory Meets Practice: The Entertainment Law Series.

As its inspiration, this draws upon the events organized by our colleague, Peter Hodgkinson OBE, for his Criminology Students many years ago that were a source of inspiration and pleasure for many. We hope that this series is as rewarding and is remembered as fondly, and that it goes on to become a yearly fixture, open to all students but especially those attached to the LLB Entertainment law module and LLM Entertainment law degree.

The first of these will be delivered by Robert Allan on 19 October at 3pm, more details click here to see a poster entitled ‘Drafting and negotiating music publishing agreements’. Details of future sessions will be advertised here.
