Question of the Day - April 9, 2009

Hailey asks:

I am very interested in entertainment law and I am going to law school in the fall. However, I do not know much about the inner workings of the industry. How well must a lawyer know the industry in order to successfully represent and protect an artist?

Hartmann responds:

Lawyers must know everything presented in The Holodigm Seminars plus all the legalities including the substance in the array of contracts necessary to conduct business in the entertainment industry. There is no getting around this. To be an effective lawyer it is imperative that you understand the creative and fiduciary responsibilities of each of the eight core professions of entertainment. A law degree is also very helpful in conducting the profession of booking agent.
