Hospitality Law (GHamES)

The newest addition to Seton Hall Law School’s curriculum, Hospitality Law, is an important piece of the GHamES program. Hospitality law, which encompasses the food & beverage services, tourism & travel entities, and the hotel & lodging business, is deeply interconnected with entertainment, sports, and gaming law. Hospitality infrastructure often defines the face of our places and affects what kind of economic development can occur there. More and more, casinos, sports arenas, restaurants, and hotels serve multiple purposes and require sophisticated legal minds capable of navigating complex questions involving premises liability, labor and employment law, franchising, licensing, land use and development, and real estate finance.
