February 6, 2009

Tim Kappel, a third-year law student at Loyola University New Orleans, has been selected as a finalist for the GRAMMY Foundation’s 11th Annual Entertainment Law Initiative Essay Competition. Kappel’s essay netted him airfare, hotel accommodations and a ticket to the 51st Annual Grammy Awards, as well as a shot at scholarship money.

The GRAMMY Foundation’s essay competition will award more than $10,000 in scholarships to promising entertainment law students.

As a finalist, Kappel will present his paper, “Ex ante Crowdfunding and the Recording Industry: A Model for the U.S.?,” Friday at the ELI Luncheon & Scholarship Presentation in Los Angeles, Calif. Kappel’s paper examines the emergence of fans of an artist who assume the role of investors by helping finance the recording process of an album.

The 51st Annual Grammy Awards will be telecast this Sunday, Feb. 8.
