So you want my arts job: Arts Lawyer

As an arts lawyer, Roxanne Lorenz helps artists and creators to understand and protect their rights. The job requires an ability to convey complex legal concepts, attention to detail, a lot of reading and most importantly, a passion for the arts.

A love of arts and entertainment combined with a desire to work in the legal industry lead Roxanne Lorenz to the independent national community legal centre for the arts  – Arts Law   where she has now worked for 5 years.

This is something I have to explain to them quite regularly, actually! As soon as I became a qualified lawyer, my family thought I would be an expert in every legal issue under the sun. But just as there are medical specialists (you wouldn’t go to a dentist for advice on how to fix a broken leg…hopefully!) the same applies in the law.
