UCLA Law Named America’s Top Entertainment Law School by The Hollywood Reporter


​July 20, 2012 – UCLA School of Law was ranked number one in The Hollywood Reporter’s first listing of the best schools for an entertainment law education. Ranking higher than USC Gould School of Law and Harvard Law, UCLA Law claimed the top spot on the list for its diverse and specialized course offerings, esteemed alumni working in all fields of entertainment and the ability of students to also take classes at UCLA’s film and business schools. The publication noted that UCLA Law was one of the first schools to consider entertainment a serious discipline, more than four decades ago, and cited the annual UCLA Entertainment Symposium as a key event for top executives and lawyers.

For this new listing, The Hollywood Reporter surveyed more than 200 law schools in the nation, evaluating their course offerings, practical training options and alumni working in the field in order to choose the top 10 entertainment law schools.
