Journal of Sports and Entertainment Law
The Harvard Journal of Sports and Entertainment Law (JSEL) provides the academic community, the sports and entertainment industries, and the legal profession with scholarly analysis and research related to the legal aspects of the sports and entertainment world. The legal issues raised in these fields frequently draw from areas as diverse as administrative law, antitrust law, civil procedure, constitutional law, contract law, corporate law, copyright law, labor law, and real estate law. JSEL serves as a forum in which scholars from these and other disciplines can discuss the law as it relates specifically to the sports and entertainment industries and the unique issues raised therein. JSEL strives to be the premier source for academic analysis of these issues, such that scholars, industry professionals, news media, and the general public turn to JSEL when complicated legal issues arise in the sports and entertainment community.
JSEL is currently published twice per year. Issues will contain approximately four articles by professors or practitioners on current topics relating to sports and entertainment law. Each issue may also contain several case comments or notes discussing current legal issues in these fields, written by student members of the Journal. JSEL also publishes blog posts on its Highlights blog, as well as shorter essays in its online Commentary section.
As alumni of Harvard Law School have played, and continue to play, major roles in shaping the sports and entertainment industries, JSEL’s faculty/alumni advisory committee will provide guidance to ensure that the journal addresses the most critical issues in sports and entertainment law while maintaining the highest standard in legal scholarship.
