Hi, I was wondering between the areas mentioned in the subject, which one do you think can have more future and possibilities to work around the world? also which area can give you the possibility to work independently in the future? thanks
real estate law, international finance law or tech law
Based on my own professional experience, I'd say tech law comes first, with financial law a close second given that too many do their masters in financial and corporate laws these days. Another interesting field that not a lot of people specialise in is space law. In any case, most American LLMs (should you apply for one) allow you to customise your curriculum to suit your interests and career goals, so you can mix and match between different subjects to cover all of the aforementioned areas.
I'd say at the moment, It is tech law. However, if you are interested in finance or even corporate matters, please note that most of the legal principles are not that different. You will use your logical thinking than relying on the law if you are foreign counsels and have to give some advices on matters. The problem is the language barriers. However, in your firm, you will have some local staffs to help you for the research and the translation. You will have to work with lawyers anyway. This aspect is for corporate law and finance.
However, real estate is quite a challenge one. I'd recommend you to go with finance or tech law. Choose any schools which let you customize your studies. However, it is better to take a specialized course.
