Communications law concerns the regulation of radio and TV broadcasting to ensure satisfactory service and to prevent chaos. Since broadcasts transcend state boundaries, most regulation in this area comes from the federal government. Attorneys practicing in this field have the opportunity to do transactional work, governmental policymaking, constitutional analysis, lobby, negotiate mergers and acquisitions, and provide advice on business matters. Communications practices are focused in Washington, DC, and have a diverse range of clients from international multimedia corporations to one-station radio broadcasters.
