A career as a media lawyer sounds like a great legal job, offering opportunities to interact with celebrities on a regular basis, such as Premiership footballers, top musicians and entertainers, politicians, members of the professions and others in public life. With privacy laws very much in the news, having an experienced legal adviser on tap is a vital business tool for many people who need to protect their professional interests from the point of view of their reputation and to safeguard their earning ability. Many major legal firms in the UK now have at least one partner who can handle this type of work and trainee solicitors interested in moving into this field should contact a knowledgeable legal recruitment agency for vacancies where they can develop this specialisation.
Defamation – slander and libel – is the subject clients most often seek the advice of a solicitor for, when they feel that untrue criticism of themselves, or their work, which has been voiced, or published, will reduce their standing among their peers or with the public. Very often, a suitably-worded letter from a senior partner in a law firm will be sufficient to ensure an appropriate apology is issued and the offence is not repeated. If, however, the perpetrator does not back down, for whatever reason, and wants to have their day in court, the skills of a media lawyer will be invaluable.

If you want to make a living; if you want to ever retire; if you want to get a head in life, then you need to understand the business world. You have a place in it (unless you’re unemployed – but then understanding the business would may be doubly important). The good news is that the business world is oddly easy to understand because, whether you realize it or not, there is only ever really one kind of business. This is to say, there is one activity which all businesses have in common, from teaching to carpentry to non-profit work. Heck, almost all activity, even outside of business, revolves around this one kind of business activity. So what is the common thread? What binds nearly all conceivable human activities together? You’re going to be surprised when I tell you that it’s not making Friday casual, but rather it’s…
Sales. Yes, that’s right. Everything is sales, or the support of sales.
