sela1Leading attorneys in sports and entertainment law gathered on the Delaware campus Friday, Nov. 16 for a daylong conference on hot topics in film, sports, music and ethics.

The program brought together a battery of practicing lawyers, business officials and academics for a day of stimulating discussion on key legal issues in film, sports, music and ethics.

The conference, now in its third year, was presented by the law school and its Sports and Entertainment Law Association. Ivan Lee, president of the association, said the student group wanted to create a buzz with the program.

“These areas of the law are changing constantly, and in the case of music publishing, almost on a daily basis. Sports and entertainment law touches every person’s life in some way, from the films we enjoy in theatres and on demand at home, to the players we root for during Monday Night Football,” Lee said. “The Sports and Entertainment Law Association is pleased to be able to host this dynamic event annually on Widener’s Delaware campus.”
