Hey, I just had a few questions about being a musician in law school. I've played music for most of my life (trumpet), and for a lot of that time it has been central to my extracurricular life and my major source of income. I realize the workload in law school is crazy and that I will have less time, but do current law school student musicians still find time to practice and perform? Law school is definitely something that I want to do, but I really can't see myself giving up music because I don't even remember what it was like to not be a musician. At the same time, law-specific extracurriculars become fairly important, so it will involve a trade-off between spending free time on those and on music. A bit of a random post, but I'd appreciate any input people have. Thanks!
As another law school hopeful with a music degree (Music Business degree, I'm a decent vocalist but by no means good enough to make a career out of it), This thread jumped out at me.Are any/all of you working towards working in the entertainment/media law fields? I'm applying soon, and working on my personal statement for applications. I'm leaning towards a statement about how my experiences so far in music and the music industry have led to my interest in entertainment law (I currently work for a live music production/booking company, and previously interned for a prominent entertainment attorney/artist manager, and the Grammys), and I'm curious if anyone else has had success with a statement similar to mine.Blue08: Congrats on UM! Depending on my LSAT, Michigan may be in the cards for me too. Maybe I'm jaded - I would have gone to UM for undergrad had it not been a money issue. Instead I went to Wayne State on a full ride. Still bleeding maize and blue after all these years (despite this year's football team - ouch!) Their music program is fantastic, so I'm sure you won't have a problem finding some folks to jam with!
I have no idea, but if you decide to go to Michigan we should definitely try to play together!
Yea, man - with you being in state I bet anything above a 166 gets you straight in the door at Michigan, esp. with your solid gpa. If you get accepted drop me a line!
Also, just curious, is Vanderbilt a good school for entertainment law?
