Will this course confine my future practice area to oil and gas area, such as the central of the states? Thanks!

Thanks!Are you actually asking if taking a course will confine you to a specific area, or did you mean to ask if specializing in Oil & Gas will limit your job possibilities by location?
If you got into a respectable school and signed up for a bar-prep course, I wouldn't worry much about the bar (assuming you've taken 1L classes, plus evidence and maybe two or three other classes which are hard to teach yourself, such as corporations, tax, and estates. Take what you want-you earned it. Third year of law school is probably a waste of time for most people and just an opporutnity to cement their job prospect rather than learning lots of new legal skills.
I meant the georgraphic location of my future job. But I am also concerned with choosing a correct course in my third year. Many factors pop up for me to balance, but without sufficient knowledge and experience, I have no idea to make a decision.Factors are:1) I would like to choose courses with less reading assignments2) I don't know whether international law will be worthy to concentrate on because I have limited credits left for third year, and some people told me they found out that there is no such international law practice after graduation3) Some areas of law are locally oriented, such as oil and gas, mainly litigated in the center of the country4) Don't know whether I should choose course only for the purpose of bar exam.Thank you for your input and any advice.
