TESLAW currently programs two significant continuing legal education events per year. TESLAW’s marquis event, the Entertainment Law Institute, usually takes place in Austin in October or November. A two-day event offering 12-14 hours of CLE credit, ELI features prominent entertainment and sports lawyers from around the country and attracts 150-200 lawyers. There is also a half-day event called Entertainment Law 101 the afternoon before the full ELI program.
Additionally, TESLAW offers a 3-hour CLE at the State Bar of Texas Annual Meeting. In recent years, TESLAW has offered 3 full hours of ethics credit at the Annual Meeting, which have been very well-attended.
TESLAW also hosts a mixer during SXSW in Austin (the “TESLAW Spring Mixer”), which is open to all members regardless of whether they are attending the festival. It’s a great opportunity to meet fellow members as well as network with SXSW industry attendees.
