What types of law courses are there?

I'm really interested in entering a law course in university, but before I make any decisions, I'd really like to know what kinds of law there are after one finishes graduating. Could someone make a list of the different types of law there are? For example, are there different types of law regarding defending people's rights? And which are the more popular (ie. have a higher job rate?)

Thanks. =)

    Depends on what you want to do. Forensics: Science degree, like chemistry or biology Cop: criminal justice or law enforcement, or none at all Corrections: none, won't do you any good FBI: computers, criminal justice, business, accounting Customs: see FBI Border patrol: see FBI Air Marshal: must have experience as law enforcement For the most part, most departments are going to programs that prefer college courses or degrees. However, some still don't care if you have degrees. Bottom line, if you want to be a cop, make sure you have good credit! I have a B.S. in Criminal Justice, and couldn't get a job because my credit wasn't good enough. I couldn't get a job in forensics, because I didn't have a science degree. I couldn't advance in corrections because I wouldn't sleep with the supervisors, and I didn't know anyone high up nor was I related to anyone with a rank. Good luck!
