Texas Southern launches entertainment law institute

Texas Southern University’s Office of Continuing Education has increased its online certificate programming with the addition of the Attorney Ricky Anderson Entertainment Law Institute Virtual Campus (ARAELI). The institute’s e-learning certificates are designed to prepare students and lifelong learners for today’s competitive global entertainment and media marketplace.

ARAELI is a customized, self-paced program. Featured courses include artist promotion and representation management, music publishing, production and distribution, recording, performance agreements, merchandising, touring film and television agreements, and music in cyberspace.

“Texas Southern University is committed to supporting and exceeding the changing needs of our students due to the steady growth of online education and degree programs,” said TSU President Austin Lane. “Full online degree programs provide more flexibility in achieving a college education for our diverse community of learners.”

Ricky Anderson, a noted Houston entertainment lawyer, said: “With online education rapidly developing and the number of online educational programs increasing, [TSU] is committed to supporting and exceeding the current needs of our full-time and part-time students.

“The fully online certificate programs provide even more flexibility in achieving an advanced education for our diverse community of learners.”

Enrollment for ARAELI began last month. The programs are taught by experienced faculty and will be delivered through a virtual campus learning management.
