Careers in legal professions are as diverse as the people who hold law degrees. Here, in one comprehensive yet accessible volume, Gary Munneke presents a vivid portrait of Careers in Law. The book opens with an overview of the profession--how it evolved, what and where the jobs are, the various methods by which legal services are delivered to the populace. The core of Careers in Law focuses on depictions of the major areas of practice. Coverage ranges from the "traditional" areas of criminal, family, tax, and corporate law to the evolving practices of environmental law and so-called "boutique" specialties (entertainment, sports, aviation, to name a few). The book concludes by providing some observations about the ethical and practical philosophies of the law, as well as information about law-related careers. Careers in Law provides up-to-date information about the nature of a practicing lawyer's professional life, responsibilities, salary and career path. Suggestions about how to deal with the changing nature of the practice of law--professional education, re-education, adjusting career paths--are also provided. For anyone contemplating a career in law or contemplating a change in a law career, Gary Munneke's Careers in Law can be the single best source for making the right choice.

In this Second Edition, Peter A. Carfagna (former Chief Legal Officer at IMG and now a Visiting Lecturer in Sports Law at Harvard Law School), expands upon the first edition of the "Legal Evolution of America's Three 'Major Leagues'" by providing unique insights into the most significant Sports Law developments that have occurred since the publication of his first edition. In particular, the reader will note in-depth treatments of the Supreme Court's landmark "American Needle" decision, as well as of the controversial "Star Caps" case which challenged the NFL's drug testing policies. The revised text and related Hypotheticals also illuminate the increasing tension between players' "social media"/"publicity rights," and the oftentimes conflicting rights claimed by the Major Leagues and their teams. Similarly, "franchise relocation" updates are provided, including a special section regarding Major/Minor League Baseball's convoluted franchise relocation issues. A new Appendix containing a history of Major League "work stoppages" is particularly timely, given the current state of collective bargaining negotiation ongoing within each of the Three Major Leagues. Another new Appendix contains a revised Course Study Guide, which should make the book accessible not only as an introduction to law school faculty or students considering a first course in sports law, but also to undergraduate students who are interested in pursuing a career in sports law or marketing.
