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 diverse nature of entertainment law will enable you to follow a number of relevant specialisms, all of which are underpinned by issues of contract and intellectual property.
