Institute on Entertainment Law and Business

October 21, 2017
USC University Park Campus

Hosted by USC Gould School of Law and the Beverly Hills Bar Association, the Institute on Entertainment Law and Business has been a Los Angeles tradition for over 50 years. Join dozens of well-known speakers and over 800 of your professional peers to address the latest challenges facing the industry. With morning plenary sessions, four networking opportunities and afternoon breakouts that allow in-depth learning with industry leaders in an intimate setting, this is the can't-miss event for entertainment law and business leaders.

Planning for the 2017 Institute is currently underway.  We expect the same relevant and informative programming and nationally renowned speakers as that we have had in prior years. Keep checking back for updates as we have them.
