Rachel Smith is a recent law school graduate looking to connect with other professionals in the New York City area. Because of her musical upbringing, Rachel is interested in entertainment law, but she is also versed in general business law and civil litigation. Throughout law school, Rachel gained extensive training in transactional law through competing in negotiation, mediation, and arbitration. She was named the National Champion in Arbitration at St. John's School of Law Securities Dispute Resolution Triathlon, and she was named a Top Negotiator of her class at the University of Mississippi School of Law. She focused her studies into entertainment law and intellectual property, applying that coursework to write an article that covered emerging issues in copyright law. Inspired by the legal battle over the rights to the iconic song, Rachel published Why Can’t My Waiter Sing Happy Birthday: The Chilling Effect of Corporate Copyright Control in IDEA: The Journal of the Franklin Pierce Center for Intellectual Property at the University of New Hampshire School of Law. Now that she's tackled the New York Bar Exam, Rachel is excited to put her legal training to use as an attorney in New York City. I've attached a photo below to go along with the bio.
