General Board / What is the most sought after law specialty?
« on: March 13, 2010, 09:38:37 AM »
I am starting law school in the fall and have a pretty good idea of how I want to use my law degree in the future.  I am however curious about which area of law would, I hate to say guarantee, generate the most interest from “Big Firm” employers.  What is hot and what is not?

I found this information and it may shine a little more light on the subject:

Continuing on the theme of whether going to law school is worth it, here is a look at the average starting salaries for Texas law school graduates, as originally published by The Princeton Review Best 170 Law Schools, 2008 Edition. (The average starting salary for Texas Southern graduates was not included in the article.)
