LRA strongly prefers submissions of 25,000 words or less, including text and footnotes. We believe that the vast majority of law review articles can effectively convey their arguments within the limits indicated. However, this is not an absolute upper limit on the length of the article, and all submissions, regardless of length, are subject to non-discriminatory review. Citations in manuscripts should appear in footnotes and follow The Bluebook (20th edition 2015) (The Bluebook: A Uniform System of Citation (Columbia Law Review Ass`n et al. eds., 20th ed. 2015)). ELR encourages all students interested in an entertainment-related field to choose the Entertainment Law Review as their first choice. We welcome the opportunity to work with you on exciting new legal issues. Feel free to visit our offices on the second floor of Casassa or speak to an editor or editor. Entertainment law is a broad field that includes complex legal issues of constitutional law; antitrust proceedings; Bankruptcy; Contracts; Company law; communications regulation; sports refereeing; and intellectual property rights, such as copyright and trademark law. As the world becomes technologically connected, entertainment issues have expanded to an international scope that includes international trade and taxation, finance, and immigration. ELR is committed to exploring these areas and their impact on communication and art.
The Loyola of Los Angeles Entertainment Law Review (ELR) is published three times a year. We are committed to promoting scientific dialogue between the legal community and the entertainment industry and invite submissions of papers dealing with issues of entertainment, sports, communications and intellectual property law. ELR membership is a commitment that lasts throughout the academic year. Employees who wish to remain with ELR after their first year must apply for a copywriting position for the following year. Each spring, members of the current editorial board select new editors based on the nominee`s individual qualifications, employee performance (including timeliness), and demonstrated interest in the field of entertainment law. In addition to the value of the CV and the development of key legal skills, LRA membership offers friendship through regular interaction between intelligent students with similar interests; regular social events sponsored by the BDU; and the ability to connect with entertainment industry professionals. ELR`s editorial team is looking for qualified, committed and hard-working authors to contribute to the continued success of the journal. Each year, ELR selects 30 to 35 authors (subject to change) to participate in the publication of three issues. Each employee must write a case note or commentary on a relevant topic in the entertainment field under the direction of an editor.
The paperwriting process includes researching the topic, consulting with law professors and other subject matter experts, creating at least three drafts within the set time frames, and demonstrating a comprehensive understanding of the Harvard Bluebook. Loyola Law School students edit and publish three print law journals: the Loyola of Los Angeles Law Review, the Loyola of Los Angeles International and Comparative Law Review, and the Loyola of Los Angeles Entertainment Law Review. Staff and editors receive academic units for carrying out their writing, editing and production needs. The Loyola of Los Angeles Entertainment Law Review is a peer-reviewed journal devoted to entertainment, sports, communications and intellectual property law. ELR is edited by students and published at Loyola Law School in Los Angeles. The Loyola of Los Angeles Entertainment Law Review has been in production since 1981. ELR has earned a reputation as an authoritative source for professional and academic articles on entertainment law, sports and intellectual property. The BDU differs from legal journals and journals in that it is one of the few scientific publications devoted exclusively to legal development in these areas.
ELR`s readership includes executives from many segments of the entertainment world, including judges, educators, lawyers, agents, managers, and artists. BDU is able to maintain its pre-eminence in the industry through its close contacts and ongoing relationships with those at the forefront of legal developments. Unfortunately, we cannot return submitted manuscripts to the author. In addition, each employee must devote at least three hours per week to office work. Tasks include researching and editing external articles and notes or comments written by students to prepare them for publication. Staff authors should also perform citation verification tasks to verify the content and technical accuracy of the article. These tasks begin in the fall semester and continue throughout the school year under strict deadlines. Authors participate in at least three days of production during the school year. Production days, which usually take place on weekends, are devoted to proofreading articles for grammar and correcting footnotes before publication. Any employee who satisfactorily completes a grade or comment will meet Loyola Law School`s mandatory writing requirement (see Student Guide for details).
