Entanglement phase transitions in quantum chaotic systems subject to projective measurements or in random tensor networks have emerged as a new class of critical points separating ``phases'' with different entanglement scaling. In this talk, I will propose a theoretical framework for studying the universal properties of such transitions, using a mapping onto replica statistical mechanics models. I will discuss consequences for the critical properties of entanglement dynamics near entanglement transitions, and focus on various solvable limits.
