Question About Law Degree with Foreign Language Skills
Hi, sorry if this is an idiotic question. I'm an undergraduate student majoring in foreign language and Middle Eastern Studies. My two languages are Turkish and Persian, and by the time I graduate I will have an ILR 3 in one and a 2+/3 in the other, which is considered fluency.
I'm gauging my job opportunities with these skills though. I want to be able to work at an interesting job with my languages. I heard from a few people that law has niche jobs for foreign language students, is this actually true? And if so, what would those be like? Could someone advise me on what specific law concentrations would benefit from a foreign language? Is this something that might bear looking into for graduate school?
Thanks for the help. I've tried to research this on my own but it seems a mysterious topic.
