Sports & Entertainment Law Section

The Dallas Bar Association’s Sports and Entertainment Law Section welcomes lawyers who practice sports or entertainment law, watch TV or movies, read or write books, make or listen to music, or participate in sports as a player or fan.  The Section presents monthly CLE programs in its major substantive areas, bringing in experts from around the country.  It also supports programs within the community.  And it offers networking opportunities to its members.


Meeting Schedule:

The Section regularly meets at noon on the fourth Wednesday of each month at the Belo Mansion.  CLE credit is provided for our presentations.   Each October, the Section typically presents a half day Boot Camp on a substantive area within the sports or entertainment business.  Be sure to check the meeting dates in Headnotes or the DBA on-line calendar as our schedule sometimes changes to accommodate speakers.
