Hello, I'm Rachel.
In three weeks, I will graduate from Seattle University School of Law. Law student is a title that has defined me for the better part of three years.
Like many young people, I went to law school because I wanted to make a difference. Before law school, I had never met an attorney. I literally had no idea what it meant to study law. But luckily, I like learning, and law school has agreed with me.
With every area of the law I research, I learn more and my curiosity grows. Throughout law school, I have worked for state governments (Washington and Alaska) and the federal government. I had the honor of working with three fantastic judges. I had the privilege of working with dozens of amazing attorneys. And I had the opportunity to connect with brilliant law students from all over the country. I've worked on cases ranging from contract to copyright, and land use to family law. I have been very fortunate; I have yet to find an area of law that I dislike.
My passion and curiosity is part of the reason for this blog. Before law school, I was a pop-culture addict, gaming wizard, and general entertainment enthusiast. As law school has winded down, I have decided to get back in touch with my love of all things entertainment, including the laws affecting the entertainment industry.
Through this blog, I will write about interesting legal issues at the intersection of entertainment and technology. My focus will be on copyright, privacy, free speech, social media, and laws affecting gamers. Although I have experience with these topics, I hope that this blog will allow me to dig a little deeper and learn a little more. Some of my posts will take an opinion, but my hope is that the majority will be exploratory, informative, and entertaining.
I expect to post at least twice a week, but I hope to surpass that goal. Look for my first post on the law in a couple of days. But, in the meantime, you can connect with me on Twitter.
I welcome any comments and suggestions. And I would love to connect with you, so please do not hesitate to reach out.
About this Blog
I was once a licensed attorney (in Washington), but my license is now inactive. I like to geek out about entertainment,
internet, and privacy law. This blog is a place for me to do that. All of the views expressed are my own and should not be considered legal advice.
My personal blog is located under the tab Pax's Page.
Rachel is a typer of words.
