"When deciding on law schools, the availability of an entertainment law clinic was a huge factor, and not many schools offer this incredibly valuable experience. As an attorney that practices solely entertainment law, I can say without question that the practical application of basic intellectual property theory is crucial to a successful career. Entertainment law, unlike most areas of practice, is best learned by experience that cannot be found in books or the classroom."

"The practical experience and knowledge that I gained through my work with the Arts, Sports, and Entertainment Law Clinic provided me with a great introduction to the field of entertainment law and was a welcome addition to my legal education. The reward of seeing your work benefit real-world clients and influence real-world situations almost makes the achievement of a letter grade an afterthought."
