If you're pursuing a career in entertainment law, this could be your lucky week. Several major entertainment companies are looking to bring attorneys onto their team, including the people who made "Star Wars," and the company that brought you "Supertrain" and "Peter Pan LIVE!"

So, get your resumes ready. This week, as part of our affiliate relationship with Indeed, we're bringing you the 3 coolest entertainment law jobs we could find.

1. Counsel, Lucasfilm

Lucasfilm, the media company founded by George Lucas in 1971, was behind some of the biggest films in recent history: the Star Wars series, of course, but also the Indiana Jones films, "The Land Before Time," and even "Howard the Duck."

Now Lucasfilm is looking for a talented attorney to bring some magic to their company. As counsel for Lucasfilm, now a part of Disney, you'd help negotiate agreements for writers, directors, and actors, resolve television production issues, and draft licensing agreements for the company's IP. And, in a rare change from most entertainment law positions, this job doesn't require you to live in L.A.

2. In-House Counsel, Media Networks, Sony Pictures

If you're drawn more to TV than the silver screen, Sony Pictures Television might be the place for you. SPT produces and distributes everything from "The Young and the Restless" to "Better Call Saul," all through 17 production companies and across 13 nations.

This in-house position is perfect for a "junior to mid-level attorney who thrives in a collaborative team environment," SPT says. As part of the in-house team, you'll work to negotiate, document, and advise on transactions across content and platforms, from cable TV to game development.

3. Associate Counsel for Rights, NBCUniversal

NBC is once again one of the nation's leading media companies, now that it's no longer under the control of the Sheinhardt Wig Company, and they're looking for a talented attorney to join their legal team. As associate counsel for rights, you'd be responsible for advising the business on various IP issues, involving everything from distribution to merchandising to live stage production.
