A nice write up of Pepperdine's new LL.M. program in Entertainment, Media, and Sports Law in Lawyer & Statesman, Entertainment, Media and Sports Law: Becoming an Expert:
The practice areas of entertainment, media and sports law are multidisciplinary, global and challenging. Lawyers that establish expertise in these fields work with entertainers, athletes, production companies and other businesses that support these international industries.
Practicing attorneys who want to gain specialized legal knowledge of the entertainment, media or sports industries should consider an LL.M. program designed to develop a higher level of expertise. ...
Starting fall of 2017, Pepperdine Law offers an LL.M. in Entertainment, Media and Sports Law. The program is designed to provide practicing attorneys with a holistic understanding of the sports industry.
“The program will give students access to the industry, hone skills specific to sports law, and provide unique networking opportunities, said Victoria Schwartz, co-director of the LL.M. and Certificate Programs in Entertainment, Media and Sports Law at Pepperdine Law.
The school has partnered with AEG Global Partnerships, connecting students to internship opportunities with the STAPLES Center, the L.A. Kings and L.A. Live. Students will receive in-class lectures from industry insiders and participate in experiential learning activities in a world-class arena.
“The value of the LLM degree is not in the piece of paper,” Schwartz said. Rather, it is the knowledge, skill set and connections that program graduates use to become industry leaders.
