Due to our limited capacity the Music Industry Clinic is no longer accepting applications for Spring 2018.

The Music Industry Clinic ("MIC") provides free legal services for qualifying musicians and other members of the music industry in the Los Angeles area. MIC provides UCLA Law students with the opportunity to represent clients in real-life music transactional matters under the supervision of experienced music attorneys. We launched MIC in the  Spring 2018 semester and have received an overwhelmingly positive response from the local music community, which means that we are currently at capacity and at this time we are unfortunately unable to accept any additional clients.

If you are a musician, songwriter, producer, independent label owner, or other individual involved in the music industry and not currently represented by an attorney, and you need legal assistance with a transactional matter such as a band agreement, management agreement, producer agreement, indie recording agreement, sample clearance, or co-writer agreement, we hope that we'll be able to work with you in the future.

If you'd like to be added to our mailing list so that we can notify you when we're once again accepting applications and tell you about other MIC events, please email us at mic@law.ucla.edu

Please note:

  • MIC has limited capacity and will not be able to accept all qualified applicants for its services.
  • Before we provide any legal advice, we will need to run a conflicts check and you and we will both need to sign a written engagement letter that sets forth the terms and scope of our representation of you. Please do not send us any confidential information or material such as musical recordings until an engagement letter is fully signed.
