While the majority of those who attend law school go on to practice law, a sizable minority uses their legal education to pursue careers outside of the courtroom. There are number of employment opportunities which require a legal background, such as regulatory analyst and various consultant positions, but do not involve taking the BAR exam or practicing law. The law school curriculum is not solely designed to prepare practice in a courtroom setting; rather it provides students with a well-rounded education that stresses critical thinking and analytical skills. These skills are widely applicable to a number of jobs and attractive to many employers in fields such as entertainment, management, and politics. The legal background that comes with a JD can be serious advantage to students as it provides them with specialized and unique skills that many employers actively seek out.
