Law Graduates Don’t Always Have to be Lawyers

With many lawyers coming out of school of tons of debt into this poor economy, many are attempting different career paths. It is the same for many other majors as well. Though seemingly unrelated, a law degree does teach some transferable skills and knowledge that can be useful in different settings. Most law student grads won’t find jobs at top firms or be able to start their own partnerships right away. Unemployment is high, loan debt is high, and some grads might do well to consider an alternate route to success.

Some popular jobs people with law degrees tend to land in are jobs as negotiation and conflict resolution mediator, since legal knowledge is important in this job. Many also chose to work in areas like finance, banking, or business.

A surprising number of grads get involved in government and politics. Some well known people are: Kenneth Mehlman, Hillary Clinton, Bill Clinton and Barack Obama (who all have law degrees).

Law grads can also use their expertise to help influence public policy. There are many options, you can be an activist, member of an organization, or even as a journalist. Former U.S. Attorney Kendall Coffey even did this, authoring his own book while being a successful lawyer at the same time.
