Default need for lawyers with foreign language skills

I don't know that much about all the various branches of work that lawyers are involved in. Is there any great need for people with foreign language expertise among them? I am fluent in Turkish and Persian, but I do not want to work primarily as a translator or a teacher and from what I have read this work seems really interesting.



From experience, would anyone say a law degree and those language skills would be marketable? And if so, as an undergraduate student what should I do for a Masters or what should I look into specializing in with law that would use my language skills?

Yes, there is. Many large American law firms have offices overseas. The present head of the International Monetary Fund (IMF), Christine Lagarde was a lawyer with the Chicago law firm of Baker and McKenzie, and she worked in the firm's office in Brussels, Belgium. International law is a big specialty.

If you are fluent in Turkish and Persian, it should be a big plus. The essential thing for you to do is to go to law school and get good grades so that a big law firm will want to hire you. The best jobs go to people with a high class rank.
