Because a legal education prepares law school graduates to deal with issues using creative, critical, and analytical means, a J.D.'s qualifications are usually broad enough to be useful in many career fields outside a law firm.
A legal education gives graduates many transferable and desirable skills. In addition to knowing how to interpret legal terminology, J.D.s develop great analytical and persuasive abilities that prove useful in many non-legal industries.
Before we present you with a comprehensive list of interesting non-legal jobs, it is important to realize that a career is based on past accomplishments. A career change should be a transition into a related field rather than a dramatic shift into a totally unrelated field. Ideally, your non-legal job will develop important legal skills that will prove useful in your desired legal job.
