There is rarely a right answer applying this to your post what filed instead of law what should this family member pursue?
Employment statistics have to be viewed in context. They are usually a snapshot taken nine months after law school graduation, when most grads have only just passed the bar a couple of months earlier and are looking for work. It's not a very good metric for gauging long term prospects.

Lots of these fields have the potential for high income, depending on what area you go in, how long you practice, and other factors; but their main advantage is a greater chance of employability over a long period of time.
