Renowned Political Strategist James Carville will headline Tulane Law School’s 2nd Annual Entertainment & Sports Law Conference, which draws entertainment and sports executives as well as creative entrepreneurs each year.
Titled “Geaux Create: Emerging Trends in Law and Creative Content,” the conference takes place Friday, April 12 at the law school, 6329 Freret St., in the John Giffen Weinmann Hall, Room 110. A reception will follow Friday evening. Among the highlights, the conference will feature a keynote conversation between Carville and Prof. Gabe Feldman, Director of Tulane’s Sports Law Program, about the role of law in sports, including legal claims arising from the “NOLA No-Call” litigation and the New Orleans’ Saints “Bountygate” and college basketball’s recruiting scandals.
Annually, the conference explores powerful forces disrupting and remaking the sports, entertainment and creative industries, from new technologies and distribution channels to virtual reality and a melding of sports, media and entertainment content. It highlights those representing talent – from sports agents to those whose clients are some of the best known in Hollywood. Friday’s event is free and open to the public. Continuing Legal Education credit (CLE) is available.
Additionally, On Saturday, attendees are invited to stay on for a spin-off series of talks and workshops focused on the interrelation of law and crafts. Speakers from the creative industry and law students will address issues of copyright, trademark, fair use for crafters, quilters, and cosplay.
