Berklee College of Music has named Joel Katz, a leader in the field of entertainment law, to its board of trustees. Katz is former Chairman of the American Bar Association’s Entertainment & Sports Law Section.

His clients include Kenny Chesney, Julio Iglesias, Willie Nelson, Ludacris, Michael Jackson’s estate, the Country Music Association, Dick Clark Productions, and the National Academy of Recording Arts & Sciences (NARAS).

“As I have spent my entire working life in the entertainment and music business, being now included on Berklee’s board will give me a chance to give back even more to an industry that has been so good to me,” said Katz. “I look forward to working with the school administration, the teaching and professional team, and of course the students. I hope to be able to give of my experiences in the artistic community directly to the students.”

“Joel Katz has advised and represented a who’s who of the music industry, and is someone who cares about giving opportunities to musicians and to students, and at Berklee, we have both,” said Berklee president Roger H. Brown. “His vast knowledge of the music and music makers will be extremely valuable to the college.”
