Welcome to the DePaul-LCA Journal of Art & Entertainment Law's home page! Founded in 1990, the Journal is dedicated to providing lawyers, scholars and the public with a solid source of up-to-date information and analysis of contemporary legal issues affecting the art and entertainment community. This site is designed to familiarize anyone interested in these areas with what the Journal offers its subscribers. Please feel free to browse the pages, look at an index of our issues, and links to other related sites.

The Journal is published twice a year by the students of the DePaul University College of Law in cooperation with the Chicago Lawyers for the Creative Arts (LCA). LCA is the only organization in Illinois that provides free legal assistance and educational services to artists and arts organizations financially unable to retain legal counsel.

The Journal addresses a wide range of legal issues involving intellectual property, communications, contracts, constitutional law, taxation, and insurance as they relate to music, theatre, sports, dance, literature, architecture and the visual arts. We keep our subscribers informed through timely lead articles, legislative updates, case notes and comments, and case summaries. The Journal provides the law practitioner with an accurate and succinct analysis of current legal developments.

Our audience has grown steadily to comprise hundreds of subscribers nationwide. The Journal's subscribers consist not only of law libraries and art and entertainment attorneys, but also experts and enthusiasts in the varied creative fields. Since its first publication seven years ago, the Journal has developed into a reliable source of contemporary issues affecting painters, sculptors, writers, poets, musicians, composers, theatre and dance groups, orchestras, choruses and opera companies, craft groups, art galleries, commercial artists, photographers, cartoonists, producers, and many others.

Private contributions and subscriptions are the core of the Journal's financial support. The Journal needs your held to continue serving the art and entertainment community. The Journal is a nonprofit organization; therefore, donations above the subscription price are tax-deductible as contributions to a charitable organization.
