The Entertainment and Sports Law Journal is a refereed online journal. It is located within a dynamic and rapidly expanding area of legal theory and practice. Whilst focused within legal study, the areas it encompasses are necessarily interdisciplinary. Entertainment Law, Media Law, Sports Law, IP Law, Licensing Law – these are all subjects that are taught at undergraduate and postgraduate level at increasing numbers of Law Schools in the UK and beyond. Areas that are of interest to the Journal include the ways in which the law and regulatory frameworks operate in the following industries: music, sport, film, theatre and literature, art, gaming, the night time economy and the Internet and social media.
The ESLJ’s editors were very sad to learn of the passing of advisory board member Professor Steve Redhead. Steve was a great friend of ESLJ and a founding member of the Editorial Board – a true pioneer in the development of the development of studies in law and popular culture. The editors would like to thank Steve for his unfaltering support and encouragement. His legacy lives on.View Journal Submit an Article
