Writers Guild: Agreements & Negotiation



"Hollywood's a Union Town," goes the chant, and it's true. An entertainment lawyer can't be effective without a solid understanding of the Hollywood guilds and unions, yet that information is hard to come by. Union issues arise frequently in practice, and clients and employers are always looking for lawyers with this specialized knowledge.

This course focuses on issues that arise under the industry-wide collective bargaining agreements with the WGA and, to some extent, various other Hollywood guilds. It considers issues related to compensation, working conditions, residuals and more, and should be both entertaining and informative.
