ENTERTAINMENT LAW ADVOCACY
(LAWF-4071) - 2 UNITS
Entertainment Advocacy is a pass/fail two unit course designed to (1) introduce students interested in entertainment law to the process of appellate advocacy via a problem current in entertainment law, and (2) select the team who will compete in the 2020-2021 Pepperdine (Los Angeles) and BMI (New York) Entertainment Moot Court competitions. Participating students will receive an Entertainment Law-based problem, draft an appellate brief, and then compete in an oral argument competition against their classmates. The prevailing students (2Ls only) will be invited to join the Loyola Law School Entertainment Law Moot Court Team and compete in the Pepperdine Entertainment Law Moot Court Competition in Fall 2020 and the BMI Moot Court Competition held at the Benjamin Cardozo Law School in New York City in the Spring 2021. Although the course is open to 2Ls and 3Ls, only 2Ls will be eligible to join the Loyola Law School Entertainment Law Moot Court Team at the end of the semester.
