The law and music intersect in lots of ways, and I’m not just talking about the Clash song. There’s everything from contract law, which applies to, well, contracts, to the health and safety issues that pertain to live performances. But in today’s world, there are a lot of interesting issues relating to music and intellectual property law, and to royalty payments in particular.
Public interest law happens all over the place. From giant law firms, to charities, to government organizations, to NGOs all over the world. Public interest attorneys fight for death row inmates, research animals, victims of domestic violence, asylum seekers, gun rights, gun control, women’s issues, religious issues, and much more. Basically, it seems like it’s really easy to find something you’re interested in and then do it for the public interest.
