For the second year, Aerlex Law Group is sponsoring the Institute on Entertainment Law and Business, taking place on Saturday, October 22nd, on the campus of the University of Southern California (“USC”). Aerlex Law Group President Stephen Hofer will be attending the day-long event.
Hosted jointly by USC’s Gould School of Law and the Beverly Hills Bar Association, the Institute has been the nation’s top conference for legal and business leaders in the entertainment industry for nearly 60 years and annually attracts hundreds of professionals from the Hollywood community for stimulating discussions of the hottest topics in the industry.
Hofer said Aerlex welcomes the opportunity to sponsor the Entertainment Law and Business Institute because of the deep ties between Aerlex’s legal practice and the entertainment industry. “Over the years, we’ve represented more than 100 clients from the Hollywood community in connection with their aviation and aircraft-related legal work,” said Hofer, “and we’ve worked with many performers, agents, business managers and entertainment lawyers, so it makes perfect sense for us to support this very important conference.”
Lunchtime at the Institute will offer an opportunity to hear keynote speaker Ted Sarandos, Chief Content Officer at Netflix, in conversation with Bruce Ramer, Institute Chair. Mr. Sarandos, named one of Time Magazine’s 100 Most Influential People of 2013, has led content acquisition for Netflix since 2000 and has transformed the company into an industry leader in innovative and original content creation and distribution.
The Institute on Entertainment Law and Business is one of six programs offered each year by the USC Gould School of Law as part of their Continuing Legal Education program. The other programs offered include Trust and Estate, Corporate Counsel, Tax, Intellectual Property and Real Estate Law and Business.
