Main ELR Website

Since 1981, the Loyola of Los Angeles Entertainment Law Review (ELR),1 has established a reputation as the authoritative source of professional and scholarly articles on entertainment, sports, communications, and intellectual property law. In fact, the California State Legislature recently used an article published in ELR when drafting California Civil Code section 1708.8, which seeks to protect celebrity’s personal privacy rights from overzealous paparazzi.

ELR is distinctive among law reviews and legal journals because it is one of the few scholarly publications dedicated exclusively to legal development in these fields. ELR prides itself on publishing novel articles written by distinguished academics, members of the Bar, entertainment industry commentators, and exceptional student writers, addressing specific areas of entertainment industry law.


Entertainment law is a vast subject area encompassing complex legal issues in constitutional law; anti-trust litigation; bankruptcy; contracts; corporate law; communication regulation; labor; sports arbitration; and intellectual property rights such as copyright, trademark, and patent. As the world becomes technologically interconnected, entertainment issues have become prevalent on an international level, encompassing areas such as international trade and taxation, finance, and immigration. ELR is committed to examining these areas as well as their impact on communications and the arts.
