The Career Choice Series is designed to help you choose your career path. Whether you’re a law student, young lawyer, or transitioning attorney, find out what it’s like to work in various practice areas and the best way to position yourself to get there.


In this replay, we cover copyright law. Copyright is a branch of intellectual property law that protects the original authorship of various works such as books, art, music, poetry, software, and architecture. Attorneys who work in this area can work in private firms or in-house for specific companies or the government. They may specialize in copyright or all areas of intellectual property law such as trademarks and patents as well. Our speakers discuss their career paths, provide invaluable insight into what skills you’ll need to break into this area, what drew them to it, the pros and cons, and what a typical day in their practice entails.
