Enter the 19th Annual Entertainment Law Initiative Writing Competition!

Barry Law students interested in entertainment law, take note!

The Grammy Foundation (https://www.grammy.org/grammy-foundation) has announced the 19th Annual Entertainment Law Initiative Writing Competition.

The ELI Writing Competition invites law students to write a 3,000-word essay proposing a solution to an issue currently facing the music industry. The winning essays can win prizes including a ticket to the 59th Annual GRAMMY Awards telecast and other GRAMMY Week events. Past winners of the competition have gone on to productive successful careers in music, entertainment media and beyond.

The first-place winner will receive $5,000, and four runners-up will receive $1,500 each!  

The paper submission deadline is January 4th, 2017, at 1:00 PM EST.  That may seem like a long way off, but it’s never too soon to start brainstorming on a topic and consulting with your Reference Librarians.  Considering scheduling a PERC (Personal Research Consultation) with one of us by going to http://barry.libsurveys.com/perc.

Go to https://www.grammy.org/grammy-foundation/preservation/entertainment-law-initiative-eli for additional information, including the complete guidelines at https://www.grammy.org/files/pages/eli_rules_17_.pdf.

Please consider entering this competition, especially if you have taken and enjoyed Professor Courtright’s Entertainment Law class or Professor Ahlers’ Copyright Law class.

The truth is, we realize you’re all very busy, but most law students are too busy to enter these writing competitions, dramatically increasing your chances of winning.  We’ve had many Barry Law students win big prizes and accolades in other writing competitions in the past, and this would be hugely prestigious and lots of fun.

Good luck, and as always, let us know how we can help you succeed.
