If you're looking to do corporate law, I'd nail down a couple years of public experience (and the concomitant CPA). Understanding balance sheet mechanics and the like in a real world context might be hard to translate into a clear monetary return (this is aimed at robotclub's opportunity cost comment - which is no doubt valid to an extent). But there are certainly fields you could go into where that type of understanding/experience could be invaluable. Like, if you're doing sophisticated commercial litigation, being able to depose accountants with a full complement of weapons... could be fun. :D
