If you want to do development, don't go to law school. What you learn in law school is mostly irrelevant to this type of work.

Apply to SAIS or a similar program and go work for the world bank or a non-profit. I don't have personal experience with development work, but my sister is going to be working for the world bank and my roommate is a SAIS graduate.

law is not a universal degree that everyone and anyone should have.

if you want to do development get a degree in the development and work for the UN, an NGO, etc. better yet then just piling on the degrees, why don't you do field work for a while ?
