As part of its pursuit of providing high quality legal education in the fields of entertainment, arts and sports law, the University of Miami School of Law (Miami Law), in conjunction with Madrid, Spain's Instituto Superior de Derecho y Economía (ISDE), is offering a course for law students and legal practitioners intent on enhancing their knowledge on global sports and entertainment law.
The new Global Sports and Entertainment Law course is an annual two-week long program divided into two segments, i.e., one week to be taught at Miami Law and one week at ISDE in Madrid. Interested participants may take one of the two segments or both. A course completion certification will be provided to those who complete either or both of the week-long courses. For 2018, the following dates for the course will apply:

The course is open to both local and foreign legal professionals and law students currently enrolled. Non-lawyers with eligible industry expertise are also invited to apply.
