About This Course
Prepare to break into the comic book publishing industry in just two action-packed hours! Under the guidance of seasoned comic book publishing attorneys, you will draft a rough outline of crucial contract provisions, hone your client interview skills that are tailored for this sector, and engage in mock negotiations. You will get the chance to identify potential problems within publishing contracts and discover how to resolve them. Get ready to slip behind the wheel for a test-drive of comic book legal practice.
In this practicum you will take part in exercises designed to hone your skills in:
- Client intake: mock interviews to help your understanding of comic book creators and publishers as client
- Copyright and IP: issue-spotting copyright and IP issues common to the comic book industry
- Transactional drafting: we will focus on commonly-misdrafted provisions in comic book agreements
- Negotiation: mock negotiations between creators and publishers designed to help shore up your understanding of what your negotiation counterpart may not want you to know.
