Stopped reading right here. If you're even halfway fluent in Arabic, forget law, go into translation. HUGE demand for Arabic translators right now.
Not sure how much you know about Arabic, but it's not that simple.
It's a diglossic language and if OP just studied it in college, fusha will not be enough. I did 3.5 years of formal arabic at a school with a strong department and that shit was worse than worthless in the middle east. You need 3miya and you can only really get that through immersion. The people in my classes who ended up putting their arabic to actual use were those that spent at least a summer or two and a semester of study abroad. It doesn't sound like OP did that.
There might be some bridge programs that will teach dialects, but I'm not as up on that stuff as I once was. AUC/AUB would be worth looking into, but the costs aren't insignificant since college study grants won't be available. Translation is also just not for everyone. Tekrul's advice is sound - I wouldn't be surprised if you could line something up at an agency with that level of language proficiency.
I voted for Boalt, btw, although reluctantly. GULC seems better-aligned with OP's stated interests, but it's hard to justify sticker there.
