Featured seminar
S.C. Entertainment and Sports Law Symposium
For the first time, the S.C. Bar presents a seminar focused on entertainment law in South Carolina. Behind the glitz and glamour of music, television and sports glory lies an industry filled with tough negotiations, odd laws, tax incentives and trends that do not make sense to industry outsiders. Invest your day into gaining a better understanding of corporate laws that pertain to entertainment and sports, trademarks, royalties, publishing, copyrights, and managing athletes and “rock stars.”
