Entertainment Law

Rachel Thanasoulis, '19

As a student pursuing a path to practice in Business Law, Rachel has had a very unique experience at Pace Law. Rachel is heavily involved in the Sports, Entertainment, and Art Law Society, which allows her to explore her passions of law, music and entertainment.

The entertainment world is a difficult one to penetrate as a young lawyer but, through her diligence and help from the Center for Career and Professional Development, Rachel was able to obtain an internship at the World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE). Advisors at the Career Development were able to put her in contact with attorneys working at the WWE and a Human Resources representative. By showcasing her interest in entertainment law, and by having these connections, Rachel spent the summer after her first year interning at the WWE. Rachel explains, “I believe the help that I obtained through career services was one of the reasons I obtained the internship at the WWE. This shows how well connected Pace Law is and how the faculty and staff are willing to help you succeed!”

Rachel hopes to have a post-graduate placement in the entertainment and business law world, where she can explore her original interest in intellectual property, and further explore the foundation she was able to build through her work at the WWE.
