Will French, President of the Louisiana Film and Entertainment Association and Co-founder and President of Film Production Capital, L.L.C., is one of the foremost experts on motion picture tax incentives in the country. He is a regular speaker at film finance forums and seminars, including the American Film Market, the Toronto International Film Festival, and the Cannes Film Festival.
In addition, Mr. French has been actively involved in the enactment of tax incentive legislation, rules and regulations throughout the United States, and helped to author the very first digital media tax credit program in the United States.
Will French will be speaking about the developments and future of Louisiana tax incentive legislation, as part of a series of three panels co-hosted by the Entertainment and Media Law Society, the Louisiana Business and Law Society, and the Tax Club Society.
In January, the LSU Law Center embarked on our first Apprenticeship Week program. From all indications, the program was a tremendous success. It’s our hope that Apprenticeship Week will become a new tradition at the Law Center, one of which we can all be proud. To build upon and improve the program, we want to hear what you would most like to see in future Apprenticeship Week programs (courses you would like us to offer, length of the program, dates for the program, etc.)
We will hold meetings on Tuesday, March 18 and Thursday, March 20 from 12:40-1:40 in the McKernan Auditorium. Lunch will be provided. Your feedback is critical to the future success of Apprenticeship Week. We look forward to hearing your suggestions and ideas.
The Apprenticeship Week Program is the Law Center’s Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP) for reaffirmation of accreditation from the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS).
