Alternative Legal Careers

Postby ryry0613 » Mon Oct 21, 2013 11:24 pm

Has anyone ever looked into the prospect of searching for jobs after obtaining a JD degree however; without necessarily being licensed to practice law? For example many law students graduate from a lower tier school and have difficulty obtaining work formally as an attorney and others may not be admitted to the bar for various reasons ie: substance abuse issues or a criminal record. It seems as though many job opportunities exist in the insurance and banking industries, writing contracts, reviewing financial documents etc... I am applying to law school shortly and considering alternative law careers.
