The Section offers resources to members representing parties in the athletic and creative arts industries, whether in private practice, as in-house counsel, or in a policy-making role.

Our section often presents CLE events featuring informative presentations by industry practitioners from around the globe, and provides support for members to host these events, as well. These events touch upon timely topics of interest and issues of relevance to entertainment and sports attorneys. Our Sections meetings are generally hosted in a roundtable format and often include interesting discussions and lively Q&A. We encourage practitioners from all areas of the law to participate, as this is an interdisciplinary field, branching into many diverse areas of the law.

Meetings are held on the second Tuesday of each month at 2:00 pm, currently via Zoom. Please contact Dave Ratner at to receive a link to join.
