Adult-Entertainment Law: Recession-Proof Jobs for Lawyers by Erik Even
Looking for a recession-proof area of practice? … The business of porn grinds on even in lean times, and its purveyors need lawyers just as do any businesses. Adult-entertainment law is not just about obscenity and free speech, but also about zoning, labor law, record-keeping and who knows what else.
Thus, it should come as no surprise that the four-day Adult Entertainment Expo that wrapped up yesterday in Las Vegas included a program on adult-entertainment law. The Friday legal program was billed as featuring the “Young Guns” of adult-entertainment law, “the next generation of legal superstars in the adult industry.” The three porn-law sharpshooters featured on the panel were Jennifer Kinsley, a member of Sirkin, Pinales & Schwartz in Cincinnati, Ohio; Marc John Randazza, a partner with Weston, Garrou, Walters & Mooney in Altamonte Springs, Fla. (and author of the blawg The Legal Satyricon); and Cary S. Wiggins, a partner with Cook, Youngelson & Wiggins in Atlanta.
Lawyers, it appears, can make a decent living from indecency, even in a recession. So if these young guns inspire you to pursue a career in adult-entertainment law, you may wish to start out by going for a bachelor’s degree at the University of Florida. As it turns all, all three of these young guns graduated from there.
