The New York State Bar Association’s Entertainment, Arts and Sports Law
Section welcomes Section members and visitors. EASL Section's more than 1,700
members represent varied interests, including some of the sexiest issues
grabbing headlines being debated in Congress and being heard by the courts. The
EASL Section provides substantive case law, forums for discussion and debate and
information-sharing in the EASL e-community.
The section has a large, active and diverse membership, with lawyers
occupying every corner of the entertainment, art and sports law fields, at every
level, from law students and first-year attorneys to senior partners at leading
national and international firms and senior legal and business affairs
executives at multinational media corporations. While the majority of our
members are located in New York City and around the state, we also have members
in 28 other states and 20 countries, notably in Canada, China, most European
countries and the UK, Japan, Korea and throughout the Pacific Rim.
The section is comprised of 28 committees, chaired by the members of the
Executive Committee—all leading entertainment, art and sports law
practitioners—and each committee hosts frequent, outstanding, and frequently
oversubscribed CLE programs.
