Specifically: The University of Miami has a great music and law program, from what I've heard. You could probably get their max scholarship deal with those numbers. Other than that: UCLA, USC, and Loyola are situated in the ideal location for establishing ties in entertainment law. With UCLA and USC being the better choices.cityandcolour wrote:I want to connect my passions for music and law, hopefully with a legal job in the music industry. 3.7, 168, where should I apply for the best chances of this?
Outside of those options, any T14 should be capable of getting you in the door of firms that deal with music and entertainment law.
Since you're probably borderline at most of the T14, I would look closely at UCLA and USC, with Miami as a freebie option if those fell through.

My cousin is an entertainment lawyer for musicians and represents some very famous and talented people, but she got kinda lucky. She went to Fordham and worked in NYC biglaw for a few years before moving out to LA and finding her way into the entertainment business.
Make sure there are other fields you would be okay w/ practicing if entertainment doesn't work out. Lots of ppl want to do it for obvious reasons. GL

The only area you should consider outside of California is New York. NYU and Columbia both have fantastic programs (emphasis on NYU**). With your numbers though, both of those schools are probably out of reach.
Also, Vandy in Nashville could be a possibility. They have a pretty good entertainment program and location-wise, are in the heart of all the country-music action.
I'd apply to all of those and see where you get in, then figure out which area you want to live in. (I still highly recommend SoCal).
