Prank Law and Flash Mobs

Those of you still exploring either a paper topic or a focus area for your legal careers might consider this entertainment law niche: Prank Law. Ruth Carter was recently profiled in the ABA Journal as a Legal Rebel. After participating in a flash mob and starting up an improv group in Arizona, Ruth's practice has evolved to helping pranksters in need of legal assistance.

Not quite sure where to get started? Consider taking courses in First Amendment, intellectual property, zoning, and criminal law.
