This, and it's why it doesn't matter so much where you go to school in terms of what they teach. If you can do corporate law you can do entertainment law.
Schools in LA are great because you're already there and you can develop ties to the local community and network. But you're not going to get a particularly better education there, and there's nothing that makes the education any different at those schools. The advantages of law school prestige play out at firms that do entertainment law just like they do in the rest of the legal industry, so there are real advantages to going T14 if that's an option for you.
Plus, there are not that many true "entertainment law" jobs, the overall field is not enormously large, and it's wise to keep your options open. If it's what you really want to do, you can go do corporate law for a few years and then lateral to a firm that specializes in entertainment law. That's an option that'll be far more available to you if you're at a T14 or at least a highly-ranked school like UCLA or USC.
