Now Open: The Entertainment Law Institute Writing Competition

The GRAMMY Foundation, in connection with some of the nation’s most prominent entertainment attorneys, established the Entertainment Law Initiative (ELI) in 1998 to promote discussion and debate about the most compelling legal issues facing the music industry today. The Entertainment Law Initiative Writing Competition invites law students to write a 3,000-word paper on a compelling legal topic facing the music industry today. The contest culminates with the winning student authors presenting their essays at the prestigious ELI luncheon. Last year’s keynote speaker for the ELI luncheon was will.I.am.

Awards are as follows:
– First Place Winner Receives $5,000
– Four Second Place Winners Receive $1,500
– All Winners Receive: One GRAMMY® Awards Show Ticket, Round-Trip Ticket to the GRAMMY Awards, Hotel Accommodations, Ticket to MusiCares® Person of the Year Dinner

The 2011–12 writing competition is now open for submissions. Submissions are due on or before January 2, 2012 at 11am PST (2pm EST). For more information, visit  Facebook page or the Grammy Foundation Website.
