Art, Entertainment and Sports Law Section

Art, Entertainment and Sports Law Section


Attorneys interested in “artistic, entertaining and athletic” law are invited to join the AES Section, which produces educational programs for members, other attorneys and the general public concerning the many facets of law covered by the section. Previous CLE programs include the Global Film Conference co-sponsored by the Motion Picture Association of America and the section’s popular “It’s a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad Movie World” seminar on entertainment-related issues and legislative updates. The programs to date have featured speakers from the industry in such locations as Los Angeles, Europe and China. The section provides a forum for discussion and comment on legal issues related to these fields, provides information in public hearings and legislative sessions, and comments on draft legislation and proposed administrative rules affecting members, their clients and the public. To date, the section has participated in public hearings in the administrative rule process for film, television, music and infrastructure tax credits and incentives. Programs rotate throughout the state and have been held previously in Baton Rouge, Lafayette, Monroe, New Orleans and Shreveport. Section members have been featured speakers at entertainment-related seminars in Hollywood, Washington, D.C. and Cannes, with more productions planned for the future.
