Changing Your Life With A Law Degree Is Easier Than You Think
29 Jan 2020
For many people, the idea of getting a law degree is a little far-fetched. If you want one, you have to be a self-described “high achiever.” If you didn’t get the grades at school, you’re stuck.
Fortunately, that isn’t the case. While there are pre-requisites (as there are with any course), getting a law degree is actually a lot easier than you think; plus, it opens up opportunities that could utterly transform your life. Many legal professionals wind up earning more than $110,000 per year.
So how is legal education changing to make getting a law degree easier? Well, first of all, schools are increasingly using technology. Not only do they offer remote courses and learning, but they’re now providing so-called “adaptive learning material” – resources that change in accordance with the learner’s needs.
Once you have a law degree, the world is very much your oyster. As the following infographic points out, some graduates go into real estate to negotiate contracts between buyers and sellings. Most earn somewhere between $117,000 and $150,000 per year.
Others, by contrast, go into intellectual property – one of the most lucrative areas. Here, they defend the rights of patent and trademark owners against those trying to steal their ideas.
Have you ever considered making the switch to law? If so, then now is the time to do it. With more opportunities than ever before and more flexible learning, it has never been easier to get a better career and radically transform your life.
