What Type of Law do you want to Practice
« on: March 11, 2005, 09:07:00 PM »
Anyone think about what type of law they want to get into after law school.  I know many are still running around and waiting or preparing for admissions.  The legal field is very large and has many different avenues.  I have worked for the past 10 years as a paralegal and have worked on different types of law.  Corporate, Real Estate, Intellectual Property, Securities, Blue Sky and Bankruptcy to name a few.  Please post your interest or thoughts on types of law that you may be interested in pursuing.

Will be looking at setting up a private general practice in a smaller town...with as much emphasis on criminal as I can.

A friend of mine is also interested in Sports Law.  He has mentioned that Marquette is his first choice.

You realize that sports law, i.e. being an agent isn't something that is a real possibility for most ppl?  It requires TONS of start up capital.  Its a profession for the already wealthy.

As of right now, I would like to go into Employment Law (no labor to speak of in my part of the country).  We'll see how many times that may change, but my UG major only changed once (and that was only a little bit).

There is more to Sports Law then being an agent-  in fact in the Sports Market Place directory, there is a whole section on Sports Attorneys who are not agents. And I keep changing my mind between Tulane and Marquette as my first choice. ;)

Wow, there are other people interested in labor law here.

I plan on specializing in Labor/Employment first, then moving into ADR-perhaps not exclusive to L&E matters.
