Entertainment, Arts,

and Sports Law Journal

Diverse opinions contribute to the vitality of the law, and for every topic there are many issues to be addressed. The Entertainment, Arts and Sports Law Journal is a forum for ideas and a repository for legal analyses and theories. The EASL Journal presents topics that EASL attorneys address on a daily basis, and provides comprehensive overviews of both large issues that affect a majority of the EASL Section membership and analyses of more specific issues that affect only a few. In addition to contributions from practicing attorneys, the EASL Journal accepts articles from laypersons involved with issues that affect many in the EASL fields. Edited by Elissa D. Hecker, Esq., The EASL Journal is published three times a year by the Entertainment, Arts and Sports Law Section and distributed to Section Members free of charge.

The Profitable Artist: A Handbook for All Artists in the Performing, Literary, and Visual Arts (Chapter Author)

With decades of experience training and helping artists worldwide, NYFA's expert staff—in conjunction with outside professionals—have compiled a “best practices” approach to planning and organizing an arts career. This paperback handbook identifies common challenges; examines specialized areas of strategic planning, finance, marketing, law, and fundraising; and distills these topics in such a way that artists of all disciplines can digest them and apply them to their own experience and practice.
