Corporate Law

Postby Mobarry » Tue Aug 17, 2010 7:06 pm

I have a question for everyone. I wanted to know if it is advisable to pursue a corporate law degree, if you are currently majoring in International Relations. I do not have a business background per se, but have taken multiple economics and economic related courses. Could some one tell me more possibly about Corporate law as well. Also I am interested in constitutional Law but am not too sure what job one would get with that degree. I know many of the jobs related to that field would be government jobs but I wanted to know specifics and possible examples.

You don't need need a business or economics background for corporate law.

You won't find a job in constitutional law since it is mostly an academic field.

You also wont get a "corporate law degree"
You will simply get a JD. It's not like undergrad where you "major" in a certain type of law.
But in 2L and 3L you can take more contracts/corporate law courses.
I think the key is getting a corporate firm job your 2L summer and then once you graduate.

+1 to the responses above. All you need to do is to try and get into the best school possible, and that will most likely help open doors into the better jobs out there.

Why do you say ao? You'd be surprised at the amount of misinformation out there.
