 SportsEntPromo2Leading attorneys in sports and entertainment law will gather on the Delaware campus of Widener University School of Law on Friday, April 17 for a daylong conference on hot topics in television, film, sports, music and ethics.

The program will bring together a battery of practicing lawyers, business officials and academics for a day of stimulating discussion on key issues, including the process of creating a “remake” of an original television show or film and the process of sampling the musical work of others.

The conference, now in its fourth year, is presented by the law school and its Sports and Entertainment Law Association.

For practicing attorneys in Delaware and Pennsylvania attendance at the program offers five continuing legal education credits, including one ethics credit. The registration cost for attorneys attending for credit is $125 and includes lunch; the fee for Widener Law alumni is $100. The event is free for students and members of the general public, but does not include program materials or lunch. Students who want to attend the luncheon and receive program materials will be charged $25.

Registration and continental breakfast the day of the conference run from 9 to 9:45 a.m. For more information or to register, contact Constance Sweeney, coordinator for special programs, at 302-477-2177 or e-mail cmsweeney@widener.edu.
