This course is designed to enable students to expend their knowledge of the legal, regulatory, IP management, and ethical issues that apply to the entertainment, media, and sports sectors, and that impact the business and organizational dynamics of organizations that operate within these sections. Students will learn about substantive legal concepts in the core areas of law that apply to the entertainment, media, and sports sectors, including constitutional, employment, antitrust, labor, intellectual property, agency, and contract and business law. The purpose of the course is to provide graduate students with an understanding of the legal issues involved in the operation and management of EMS organizations, and to equip students with the skills and strategies needed to effectively work with business executives and lawyers to resolve these issues. The course will focus on the practical applications of laws, rules, and regulations to situations current students will likely face, and decisions current students will likely need to make, as sport, media, and entertainment business managers.
