The Recording Academy®, in concert with some of the nation’s most prominent entertainment attorneys, established the Entertainment Law Initiative® to promote discussion and debate about the most compelling legal issues facing the music industry today.
The initiative also endeavors to support future careers in entertainment law by seeking out the nation’s top law students and giving them invaluable networking and educational opportunities. For more information visit GRAMMY.com/ELI
The safety of our members and community remains our top priority, and so this year’s presentation will be broadcast online.
