You should consider what you want to do exactly with aviation since law firms and consulting companies handle different types of work.
A consulting position will involve more work advising tranportation companies on strategy, marketing and finance.
A law firm position would deal with transactions (eg - filing route application, responding to DOT complaints, Ch. 11) or litigation (eg - lawsuits). You probably would not strategize on whether the carrier should order the A320 or B737.
Keep in mind that a JD
can serve you well in both positions due to the unique skills it provides. Moreover, only a JD
can practice law (yes, I know that there are rare exceptions).
Personally, I am an engineer but I'll have a JD
in a few years. E-mail me if you have any questions.
