The Entertainment & Sports Law Section of the Austin Bar Association (ESLABA) was chartered in Spring 2013 with the primary goal of increasing networking, educational, and outreach opportunities for Austin area entertainment and sports lawyers and, more broadly, of serving as a resource for a diverse group of local lawyers, law students, and prospective clients. The section hosts regular lunch CLEs and social events and frequently partners with local arts organizations.
The mission of ESLABA is to be a resource for Austin-area lawyers, law students, and prospective clients in the arts and sports communities. ESLABA will host regular events offering networking, educational, and mentoring opportunities. Members of ESLABA include lawyers who currently practice entertainment or sports law, dream of representing creatives or sports clients, or simply enjoy the arts and wish to learn more about the legal issues involved.
ESLABA offers continuing legal education and educational events in the field of entertainment and sports law.
ESLABA provides a forum for the exchange of information and ideas relating to entertainment and sports law among those within the Austin community.
ESLABA works towards improving and carifying laws and rules affecting the entertainment and sports industries.
