Since 1982, the Cardozo Arts & Entertainment Law Journal (AELJ) has been a leader in national and international legal scholarship. When the Journal was founded, President Ronald Reagan wrote:
I know that the Journal will display the same devotion to excellence to which Justice Cardozo was, and Yeshiva University remains, committed. As you know, I have a special interest in the arts and entertainment, and you have my congratulations and best wishes as you launch a publishing venture that will contribute to learning and scholarship in this field.
For nearly three decades, AELJ has routinely published topical legal analysis on arts, entertainment, intellectual property, First Amendment, sports, cyberlaw, and media and telecommunications law. AELJ has been recognized by legal scholars, academics, practitioners, and the judiciary both in the United States and abroad for its scholarly impact. AELJ publishes three student-edited issues annually.
Each spring, AELJ hosts a symposium that attracts scholars from across the country to discuss cutting-edge legal topics. Each fall, AELJ cohosts a symposium with the GRAMMY Foundation to address current issues in music and entertainment law.
From 2010 to present, AELJ has been ranked as the top arts, entertainment, and sports law journal in the country and the top intellectual property journal in the state of New York.
