Taking advantage of the combined expertise in the overlapping areas that affect the law and business of both entertainment and sport, the University of Miami law and education schools present a unique event featuring two separate conferences:

 

Entertainment Law + Industry Conference (ELIC), and a Sport Law + Industry Conference (SLIC).  Both Conferences feature prominent attorneys and executives appearing not only as keynote speakers, but also on plenary panels and in breakout sessions, all of which address topical, cutting-edge subjects.
 

The ELIC takes place on February 16,2018, and the SLIC takes place on April 5 and 6,2018. There are many networking opportunities, as both Conferences are designed to introduce and engage students, alumni, legal professionals, and executives.
