    Compliance is actually really good if you are also interested in law. I was talking to several of the people in the compliance sector of large company and most had law degrees as well. They do things like customer identity verification, due dilligence, investigating money laundering and questionable securities practices. It sounds like this industry is expected to grow faster than other industries.
