The Entertainment Law Initiative® event is the nation's preeminent gathering for entertainment attorneys and the music business community, and it provides a forum for the industry to honor its legal practitioners, hear from thought leaders, and support promising law students interested in entertainment law. 

The 23rd Annual Entertainment Law Initiative Event & Scholarship Presentation will take place during GRAMMY® Week in a new virtual format, gathering the nation's most prominent entertainment attorneys to promote discussion and debate about the most compelling legal issues facing the music industry today. The event will honor the Black Entertainment and Sports Lawyers Association — a nationally recognized leader in legal education and professional development within the United States for lawyers and professionals in the entertainment, sports and related industries — with the 2021 Entertainment Law Initiative Service Award. This honor is awarded to an attorney or organization that has demonstrated a commitment to advancing and supporting the music community through service. Sophia Sofferman, the winner of this year's Entertainment Law Initiative Writing Competition along with runners up Evan Biegel and Alberto Vargas will also be recognized during the virtual event. Other program participants include Recording Academy® Chair and Interim President/CEO Harvey Mason jr., Entertainment Law Initiative Executive Committee Chair Laurie Soriano, Entertainment Law Initiative Executive Committee member Ken Abdo, and Recording Academy Chief Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Officer Valeisha Butterfield Jones, who will lead a roundtable discussion that will explore the current state of diversity in the music industry.

This annual program also includes a Writing Competition that invites law students to write a 3,000-word paper on a compelling legal topic facing the music industry today. The contest is open to Juris Doctor (JD) or Master of Laws (LLM) candidates currently enrolled at any U.S. law school. A $10,000 scholarship will be awarded to the author of the winning paper, and a $2,500 scholarship will be awarded to the two runners-up. The winning student and two runners-up will be recognized during the 23rd Annual Entertainment Law Initiative Event & Scholarship Presentation to provide a forum for interaction with successful attorneys in the field. Earlier this month, of the Entertainment Law Initiative hosted an Info Session for students interested in submitting for this year’s Writing Competition to learn from previous student winners, in addition to gaining career advice from top entertainment lawyers.

Celebrate Black female entrepreneurs by tuning in to a virtual concert event featuring recording artists Ella Mai, Ari Lennox, and Tierra Whack with a special appearance by Mastercard's newest ambassador, GRAMMY® Award-winning singer and actor Jennifer Hudson. The virtual concert will spotlight the contributions of Black women in music and business, including the remarkable performers who will grace the digital stage.

After winning her first GRAMMY for her Hot 100 smash hit “Boo'd Up," R&B singer/songwriter Ella Mai’s debut opus was nominated for Best R&B Album the following year. Her platinum-selling effort also scored a triple-platinum hit with "Trip," which topped the Billboard R&B/Hip-Hop Airplay chart. GRAMMY-nominated singer/songwriter Ari Lennox blossomed into an R&B powerhouse when she delivered her platinum single "Shea Butter Baby," featuring J. Cole. Her torrid streak continued when she followed up with her certified gold record "BMO" from her debut album Shea Butter Baby. GRAMMY-nominated lyricist and fast-rising superstar Tierra Whack is solidifying her position as a force to be reckoned with her riveting release Whack World. Loaded with flavorful wordplay and boundless creativity, Whack netted her first GRAMMY nomination for her standout track, "Mumbo Jumbo."

Special guest Jennifer Hudson will also join and share details about the Strivers Initiative, a new, multifaceted platform she and Mastercard have launched in support of Black women business owners, who have been among the hardest hit during the coronavirus pandemic. It starts with Mastercard's pledge to invest $500M in Black communities and continues with a special grant program in partnership with Fearless Fund, a VC-firm started by women of color to help women of color founders grow their businesses.

On top of outstanding musical performances, the event features interviews with Black women entrepreneurs from the Strivers campaign, as well as a fireside chat with a panel of leading Black business owners. Plus, keep an eye out for exclusive meet-and-greet opportunities! Set your calendar to tune in to the concert on March 13, 2021, and discover how Mastercard is advancing equal opportunity for all and taking a stand against racism with the In Solidarity movement.
