5 Out-Of-The-Box Careers in Law You Might Want To Consider

So you want to be a lawyer but not just any lawyer. You want to do something different, make it worth your while fighting all those cases, and do something a bit out-of-the-box (while still being within the framework of law?).

If you’ve answered yes to all of the above, then sit back and enjoy this post which sheds light on 5 out-of-the-box careers in law that you could consider. 

  1. Personal Injury and Clinical Negligence Law

Cases relating to personal injury and clinical negligence law can be wide-ranging and rather unusual, so if you want to spice up your law career and work on different and unusual cases, then being part of an expert team of personal injury attorneys might be perfect for you. 

  1. Media Law

The media industry in itself is so diverse, so laws and regulations relating to it can be quite interesting as well. If things such as copyright, advertising, the Internet and censorship pique your interest, then media law might be just the branch of law for you!

3. Gaming Law

Yes there is actually a field of law that specialises in gaming rules and regulations. While gaming law might not be an official or traditional branch of law but rather a collection of several aspects and areas of law including regulatory law, criminal law, company law, contract law, competition law and others, it is still rather unique and something to consider if you are interested in gaming. It deals with rules and regulations relating to the gaming and gambling industry. 

4. Entertainment Law 

Now this is perhaps among the most entertaining and unusual areas of law – and would undoubtedly involve a lot of drama! As an entertainment lawyer, you can either be employed by an entertainment company or a law firm that represents an entertainment company or even someone in the field of entertainment (films/ television/ music industries) such as an actor or actress or musician. 

Entertainment law is extremely diverse and often involves work outside of the office or courtroom, so if a typical 9-5 is not your cup of tea, then this is ideal for you. Work can include things such as finalizing celebrity endorsement deals, managing a celebrity’s social media scandals and other things.

5. Sports Law

If you are a sports fan but not a sports player, how about representing sport as a sports lawyer? Sports lawyers can represent players or teams, clubs or associations and manage the compliance of teams, clubs, sponsors and sportspersons.

5. Intellectual Property Law

If you’re looking for something a little different and extremely stimulating and interesting, then Intellectual Property or IP Law might be just the thing to go after. Intellectual Property is anything that refers to creations of the mind such as inventions, designs, names, or any artistic or creative works such as books and films. These are protected by law through copyright, trademarks and patents, and the job of an Intellectual Property lawyer is to protect the ownership of these ideas and inventions.
