  •  I came up on the finance (treasury) side (5+ / 0-)

    and have been a Fortune 500 corporate financial officer and a small cap public company CFO. Financial accounting is certainly an interesting place, but I don't know if it uses your legal education the best. I think it's a great idea to join an accounting firm and become a licensed CPA, but after that your best job prospects may be with law firms who work in financial services or with a financial services firm on the transaction side. I'd keep your eye out for a place that leverages your JD.

    One interesting thing that you could do is attend the BA/BS graduation wearing your JD regalia. That would have lots of people scratching their heads.
