Any booming legal fields?

Postby theurbanzone » Tue Jun 11, 2013 7:38 pm

I'm an incoming senior undergrad and I was wondering if any particular legal fields are booming? I just want to do some research and become familiar with these fields, if there are any.

Probably not that soon. The shale being discovered all over the US will make us a major player in a few decades, and will last for a number of decades. Good for a career! :P
