Elaine’s Answer

You can pursue many careers with a law degree. In fact, in many businesses, a legal background can serve you very well, without a single day in court. The fundamentals of a law degree will enable you to understand business language, how to negotiate and work in a professional setting and work within hierarchy. All of these elements make you someone that can be effective in business.

Ronald’s Answer

The legal profession opens up opportunities supporting many career fields. For example, if you are interested in science or art, a law degree with a concentration on intellectual property will enable you to support the rights of patent and copyright holders to their inventions and works. Similarly for the medical profession or consumer products. In addition, the field opens doors for service in federal, state and local government because the knowledge you gain in your studies will give you a degree of insight into the working of government that many of your colleagues will lack.

Ronald recommends the following next steps:

Decide where your primary interests lie
Pursue courses directly in that field of study
Pursue a law degree with a focus on areas of law related to your primary interest
