We are currently planning the 2010 conference. Please email any suggestions for speakers or musical acts to MusicLawConference@gmail.com.
The Music Law Conference at The University of Florida Levin College of Law is hosting its 8th annual conference on February 27, 2010. The conference brings together musicians, lawyers, students, academics, policy makers and entertainment professionals for a weekend to network, learn, and share ideas. It is our goal that everyone, from the disgruntled ex-band member to the seasoned entertainment attorney, that attends the conference will leave with a new perspective on the music industry.
The theme of last year's conference was "From the Suits to the Stage." We explored topics that every musician and future entertainment professional needs to know.
Topics for this year will include: digital and retail markets, new forms of music distribution, international issues, ethical issues, protecting musicians' rights, understanding both sides of the table, the art of business, and basic D.I.Y. (Do-It-Yourself) ideas for new artists.
The Conference is scheduled for Feb. 27, 2010 (Saturday) at the Chesterfield Smith Ceremonial Classroom at the University Levin College of Law. The conference and panel discussions, which will examine the music business, will take place from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.
The live music showcase will be on the evening of Feb. 27, 2010 from 9pm to 1:30am at a local music venue.
