Life After Law

Publisher: Bibliomotion, Inc.
ISBN: 9781937134655
Release Date: 2013-09-24
Genre: Business & Economics

Written by Harvard-trained ex-law firm partner Liz Brown, Life After Law: Finding Work You Love with the J.D. You Have provides specific, realistic, and honest advice on alternative careers for lawyers. Unlike generic career guides, Life After Law shows lawyers how to reframe their legal experience to their competitive advantage, no matter how long they have been in or out of practice, to find work they truly love. Brown herself moved from a high-powered partnership into an alternative career and draws from this experience, as well as that of dozens of former practicing attorneys, in the book. She acknowledges that changing careers is hard much harder than it was for most lawyers to get their first legal job after law school but it can ultimately be more fulfilling for many than a life in law. Life After Law offers an alternative framework and valuable analytic tools for potential careers to help launch lawyers into new fields and make them attractive hires for non-legal employers.

If you want to play the game, you need to know how to play the game. Sports law is a niche practice area. It encompasses a variety of disciplines, but also requires knowledge of the inner workings of professional leagues and sports-related statutes in order to be successful in the field. How to Play the Game provides readers with an overview of sports law specifically tailored to practitioners who are looking to add sports law to their practice area and who need a practical, informative--though not encyclopedic—overview of the field to help them get started. It discusses the laws that govern the sports industry, from contract drafting and negotiation to antitrust issues, intellectual property matters, and labor law concerns. It also discusses the role of players' associations, the power of sports commissioners, sports betting regulations, and more. But what makes this book unique are the real-life case studies involving recognized professional and college sports figures as well as anecdotes from the author's own experiences as a sports attorney, agent, and media spokesperson for college and professional sports industries. In addition, an appendix contains examples of legal documents--including professional contracts—with which any sports attorney/agent needs to be familiar. In short, How to Play the Game is the go-to source for anyone interested in getting into the field of sports law.
