About the Kernochan Center
New York City is home to renowned cultural institutions and creative artists and is the headquarters of major media and entertainment companies. There is also a substantial group of attorneys -- including many Columbia Law School graduates -- and law firms that specialize in legal problems involving these entities.
With such resources at hand, Columbia's Kernochan Center for Law, Media and the Arts was established to contribute to a broader understanding of the legal aspects of creative works of authorship, including their dissemination and use.
The Center has encouraged the development of instruction at the Law School in topics such as intellectual property, copyright, trademarks, the regulation of electronic media, and problems arising from new communications technologies. MORE ABOUT »
