Jennifer’s Answer

The FBI regularly recruits individuals with a law degree, you can work as a military lawyer for the Judge Advocate, most politicians also have law degrees. If you aren't interested in actually practicing law, many law graduates have successful careers in writing/journalism, or as policy analysts. You might consider shadowing someone in your community to get a better idea of what a career as a lawyer entails. Best of luck in the future!

Alice’s Answer

A large majority of people become practicing attorneys. However, there are also numerous non-attorney jobs/careers, such as:
-legal operations;
-contracts manager;
-real estate;
-policy;
-public interest work;
-politics;
-professorship;
-HR.

It sounds like you aren't in law school yet, so one way to personally learn more about various careers is to connect with your college career center and alumni network to see if they can connect you with alumni who have gone to law school and are currently in various professions.

Nissa’s Answer

A law degree can offer you various career options. However, the most obvious range of opportunities coming out of law school is in the practice of law, particularly given the financial pressures of the student loans you may accrue over your time in law school (or from college).

In addition to the other careers highlighted in the other answers here, there are other pathways to consider. For instance:
Compliance; entrepeneurship; politics; non-profits; public service; academics; and financial services/accounting; consulting.

Another possible advantage to having a law degree is that it does allow you to move around to different localities, etc. (given local requirements for state bar registration, etc.).
