At least for corporate careers, the truth is that many companies are hesitant to hire someone with a law degree. They either think that you'll leave the first chance you get, or that there is something wrong with you individually since you're choosing not to become a lawyer (they don't understand the realities of a law graduate and why we might not want to become a lawyer). Some applicants don't even mention that they went to law school.
Alternatives & Repaying Loans
Might try a federal bureaucratic organization or a law enforcement agency (they'll actually value your law degree). For those who looking to pay off debts, keep in mind that Army/Navy will pay back government sponsored student loans "stafford, perkins, etc" up to $65,000 if you enlist for 4 years in a "critical" job. With the army, pretty much every job is critical while the navy only has 10-15 "critical, undermanned" jobs. This is what I personally did, as I knew at the end of my 1st year that I didn't want to be a lawyer but finished law school anyways, taking it easy my 2nd and 3rd years. Afterwards, I enlisted and right now am an Army EOD tech with a over a year left on my contract. Of course this road obviously isn't for everyone but the pros are that there are lot of "alternative" career options for a veteran with a law degree.
