Entertainment & Sports Law Symposium

ยป Entertainment & Sports Law Symposium

The Chapman University Dale E. Fowler School of Law Entertainment and Sports Law Society hosts an annual symposium focusing on the field of sports and entertainment law. The symposium covers substantive areas of law such as intellectual property, contract law, labor law, anti-trust law, and corporate finance. The Entertainment and Sports Law Society endeavors to educate its members on the relevant legal issues that accompany this rigorous practice area. By organizing symposia, the society seeks to work with individuals and organizations within the profession and provide information and assistance concerning potential employment opportunities.

We regret to announce that the annual symposium scheduled for April 9-10, 2020 has been cancelled. Although there have been no suspected cases of COVID-19 at Chapman and Orange County continues to be considered “low risk” for contagion, Chapman University leadership has decided to cancel most campus events out of concern for the well-being of the entire campus community. At this time, this event will not be rescheduled. We appreciate your understanding as we endeavor to keep the health and safety of our students, staff and guests as our highest priority.

Additional information and resources are available on Chapman’s coronavirus website.
