In 2018 Marc Zand was asked to join the Adjunct Faculty at the University of Pennsylvania Carey School of Law.  Dean Ted Ruger sought out Zand to lead the media & entertainment law offering, as there was a scarcity of experienced professors with the level of Zand’s real world experience.

As one of the highest rated and popular professors, Zand taught at University of Pennsylvania for 2 years only to be interrupted by the Covid pandemic in 2020. Through his extensive relationships in the media industry and being a Miami resident, Zand was invited to bring his course and talents to the Entertainment, Arts and Sports Law LLM program at the University of Miami School of Law. Zand is presently teaching an intensive 6 week seminar focused on negotiation strategies in the creation and distribution of original television series.

Becoming now known as a well-versed subject matter expert, Zand has consulted for several major Studios as an expert witness in various litigations involved production disputes and profit participations for content creators. Zand has also advised investment firms in their due diligence analysis for investment in broadcast and cable properties.  Zand remains available for engagements as a subject matter expert in the areas of content production, distribution and licensing of rights.

"Thank you for the exposure to the agreements in the entertainment industry, specifically television. Currently, I am working with Paramount on the unscripted television BET team. To my surprise, I understand every contract they have sent to a certain degree. No other class I have taken at UM has provided this knowledge, and I am grateful.'"

"Unlike traditional courses at Penn Law, Marc leveraged his background and unique career experience to shape a thought provoking curriculum based on the real world.  Many of the skills we covered, such as the fundamentals of contracts, the art of negotiating and, most importantly, learning to listen to my client’s needs, are skills that I continuously use and drive
success in my practice today. "
