David Bowie, the paralegal

David Bowie, the paralegal

12 January 2016 By Lara Bullock

As the world mourns the passing of music legend David Bowie, the British musician's short stint as a paralegal has come to light. 

David Bowie, who died of cancer on Sunday aged 69, worked as what’s now known as a paralegal for a year in the 1960s, according to Legal Cheek.


Mr Bowie spent part of 1968 and 1969 working at litigation support firm Legastat Limited doing document review-style tasks to earn some extra cash.

Legastat Limited was, and still is, located on Carey Street in London – close to Lincoln’s Inn and the Royal Court of Justice.


So as Folklaw farewells the great Ziggy Stardust, it will also pay tribute to David Bowie, the paralegal.
