Legal Writing Award takes Law and Leadership Institute Instructor to the Grammys!
Amid all of music’s brightest stars at the Grammys will be one of The Ohio State Moritz College of Law’s brightest minds, and a Law and Leadership Institute Instructor: Matt Borden. No, he won’t be performing or taking the stage, but he will be presenting his award-winning paper to hundreds of the top lawyers in entertainment law from around the country.
3L Matt Borden’s paper on the law governing the inheritance of digital music collections after people die was selected as the winner of the Grammy Foundation’s Entertainment Law Initiative Contest. Each year law students from around the country submit papers about legal issues facing the music industry today with the winner receiving $5,000 and an all-expense paid trip to the Grammys in Los Angeles, Calif. Borden will fly to Los Angeles on Thursday and attend a luncheon along with the four runners up of the contest to present his paper. Then he’ll attend the Grammys on Sunday. Congratulations, Matt!
