Entertainment & Media Law Institute (EMLI)

Entertainment Law Concentration

Loyola Law School has been consistently ranked as one of the top entertainment law schools year after year by The Hollywood Reporter and Variety, and recognized as such by entertainment industry professionals. 

Entertainment attorneys are typically transactional lawyers or litigation lawyers. However, some entertainment lawyers may practice both.   

For this reason, the Entertainment & Media Law Institute has created two tracks for the Entertainment Law Concentration: 

  1. Entertainment Law - Transactional   
  1. Entertainment Law - Litigation   

Both tracks require a student to complete four (4) core courses and an experiential component. 

Entertainment law is not its own area or practice of law. Rather, it is a sum of various areas of law that are relevant to the entertainment industry, i.e. intellectual property, labor and employment, international, immigration, taxation, and business law. 

A student who successfully completes the Entertainment Law Concentration requirements will have this specialization reflected on their final transcript.
