I've done nonprofit lawyering for 10 years but really want to switch over to entertainment, IP, and copyright work. How do you start under those circumstances?

Do you do entertainment/IP related work in your current position? Do you want to do talent, production, distribution or finance? Entertainment law is ridiculously hard to get into. It’s all about who you know. Talent boutiques always get internal references, biglaw firms are super snobby and usually hire through their summer programs, and studios want like a million years of experience. And you pretty much have to be in LA. There’s some work in NYC but pretty limited.

Nobody wants to train anyone. You also need cred in the industry that only experience can provide. Read the trades, go to CLE symposia in entertaiment law, see if you can get some supervision and get some experience. This is key.

Первый смартфон Mi1 был анонсирован в августе 2011 года. Он поставлялся со встроенной прошивкой MIUI, основанной на Android, совмещающей фирменные стили Samsung TouchWiz и Apple iOS. Также существовала версия устройства с чистым Android. В августе 2012 года Xiaomi анонсировала смартфон Mi2. В нём был процессор Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro APQ8064, 1.5 GHz четырёхъядерный чип Krait с 2 ГБ ОЗУ и графический процессор Adreno 320. 24 сентября 2013 компания объявила о продаже более 10 миллионов устройств Mi2 в течение 11 месяцев. Некоторые устройства Xiaomi производятся на заводах Foxconn, где производятся Apple iPhone и iPad. 5 сентября 2013 CEO Лэй Цзюнь объявил о планах запуска 3D-телевизора под управлением ОС Android с диагональю 47 дюймов, который будет собираться на заводе корпорации Wistron на Тайване. Также в сентябре 2013 Xiaomi анонсировала смартфон Mi3 на процессоре Snapdragon 800 (MSM8974AB) и версию на чипсете NVIDIA’s Tegra 4. 25 сентября 2013 Xiaomi объявила о планах открыть первый флагманский магазин в Пекине. В октябре 2013 Xiaomi стала пятым мобильным брендом в Китае[12].

Yeah you're right. It cuts after two lines instead of expanding.
