Entertainment, in forms such as music, film, media, sports and the arts, is a large part of life globally. It's a combination of society, popular culture and commerce, and the interaction of these with law produces an exciting, contemporary subject. It's an area deeply affected by technological progress as well as business adaptation.

The course aims to develop your understanding of how key fields within the entertainment industries operate, to assess the impact of the law upon them, and give you the practical skills necessary to succeed in a career in entertainment and media law.
