What kind of job can I get with a law degree that involves traveling?

I'm thinking about getting a degree in law but I don't want to be stuck in one place for forever. I want a job that involves writing, discussing ideas and values that are important to my country and the rest of the world, leadership in some sort of way, and a schedule that changes with days that are not monotonous. I'd love something challenging but not to the level of a scientist. A job that involves hard work and intellectual activity but also makes a difference in the world would be amazing. Thanks!

Simon’s Answer

There are many opportunities to travel as a business lawyer. If you work for a company with international offices, you may get to visit those offices for meetings occasionally. There are also often legal conferences around the world on various topics. Work travel is different than leisure travel though. There are times when I have been in a lovely city for a work and saw none of it.
