Chanel Chasanov ’18 in her recent publication in DePaul Journal of Women, Gender and the Law discusses how the entertainment industry violates the implied covenant of good faith and fair dealing for failure to allow artists voluntarily terminate their contracts when instances of sexual assault occur.
