Since that's the main interest I have in studying the law, there really isn't any other option that appears as supportive for me in that field. Also since it is in D.C. that is a selling point for me.
For whoever asked here are some examples of a job. http://www.victimrights.org/about-vrlc/staff-bios
But it's not going to happen. American has far too many students that it can't place. You have to expect to be the typical student - and the typical student won't find a job.
So the solution is to go to a better school, where even the average student finds employment. If you go to the best school possible (HYS, or at least T14) you'll be able to get the job you want. Don't throw away your future. If you go to American, you'll be regretting it.
