Externship: Entertainment



2 to 5 units (depending on semester of participation and nature of placement) Entertainment externships place students with legal departments of studios and entertainment companies. Some examples include Warner Bros. Pictures, Rhino Records, and Fox Group Legal. Externs work closely with experienced attorneys on a range of projects generally involving intellectual property issues and/or contractual issues. The field placement is complimented by an academic component, which is primarily administered online. In order to enroll in this course, students must timely apply through the Externship Program and obtain the approval of the Externship Office. For specific details, please see the Externship Policies & Guidelines as well as the list of Approved Placements, available in the Externship Office (W231) and online, click here.


Please check with the Externship Office and placement descriptions for possible additional prerequisites.
