Entertainment Law Journal

About the Entertainment Law Journal 

The Belmont Entertainment Law Journal was founded in 2019. Our goal is to create an academic journal that focuses on the unique legal and  business issues that are relevant to the entertainment industry, including music, film, television, media, and sports. The location of our law school in Nashville, Tennessee is a premier setting for our endeavors. Known as Music City, Nashville’s music industry is a $9.7 billion industry within the Nashville MSA, has a $5.5 billion local impact, over 190 studios, 130 music publishers and 80 record labels in the region, 56,000 music industry jobs, and $3.2 billion labor income annually (Nashville Chamber of Commerce). Our sports community is a hotbed for collegiate and high school sports and home to three major league franchises. The journal will contribute to this ecosystem by providing scholarly research, detailed analysis of relevant legal issues, and providing a forum for thought leaders, industry professionals, attorneys and academics to contribute to the progression of this ever-evolving area. In addition to our printed journal, we will publish on-line content and maintain a video blog where the latest legal issues are discussed. EntertainmentLaw_resized.jpg
