The media and entertainment industry in the United States is as vibrant and creative
as ever, and offers a myriad of opportunities for talented, hardworking attorneys.
Whether your interest lies in music, publishing, film, theatre, television, video
games, or podcasts, the entertainment industry has a place for you. Lawyers in this
space are conversant in a wide array of substantive areas including intellectual property,
contracts, corporate law, and negotiations and must be prepared to use that knowledge
to counsel their clients on everything from licensing rights to free speech considerations,
to employment contracts. Our alumni are using the skills they learned at Seton Hall
Law School to advise entities including ViacomCBS, Atlantic Records, Vice Media, Universal
Parks & Resorts, Sony Pictures Entertainment, NBCUniversal Media, Bento Box Entertainment-Blockchain
Creative Labs, and Orange Theory Fitness.
A Seton Hall Law School education prepares students with rigorous coursework and applied
learning opportunities that ensure that students are ready to contribute to their
chosen field immediately upon graduation. In addition to required core courses, students
interested in entertainment law can elect to take Entertainment Law Copyright, Law
and Music, and/or First Amendment Law. We are constantly reviewing our curriculum
to ensure that our courses reflect the newest developments in the industry and prepare
our students to succeed.
The Entertainment and Sports Law Society (“ESLS”) is an entirely student-run group, dedicated to broadening students’ exposure to sports,
entertainment, gaming and hospitality law and to learn from and network with industry
professionals in these fields.
