“Creative arts are central to Florida as a cultural center, a gateway to the Americas, and an important contributor to its long-term economic growth,” said Jon Garon, J.D., dean of NSU’s Shepard Broad College of Law. “The partnership between NSU Law and the Recording Academy highlights the centrality of these issues to South Florida’s growing legal and economic future.”

The CLE program will provide an interdisciplinary review of important legal issues for artists in the music business today and will include a panel discussion moderated by Kenneth Abdo, an attorney, private practice artist advocate and member of The Recording Academy Board of Trustees.

The panel will be followed by an informal discussion of the issues over cocktails and hors d’oeuvres.

“The collaboration between the Recording Academy and NSU Law brings the legal community and the arts community together to focus on public policies that encourage creativity and individual expression,” added Dean Garon. “We are pleased to partner with these industry leaders to bring important legislative issues to our legal community.”
