What an amazing combination! I would add my profession: compliance. Many compliance people have legal backgrounds and psychology plays a very interesting part in determining the key question of compliance: why some people do bad things (in this specific context: pay bribes). It would help you address rules and regulations in a way that is tailored to the personality you are dealing with. Also, working as a compliance investigator would require those two skills.
Another job that spring to mind is HR (Human Resources): your legal background will be helpful in terms of employment law, and your psychology background would be helpful in your everyday dealings with employees (having difficult conversations, recruitment, talent development etc) .

Hey Sabine,

I think a forensic or criminal psychologist would encompass both.

Thanks,

Great question! Probation officers must be able to blend psychology and legal studies. Other ideas include child protective service, police officer, and detentions officer.
