What Kind of Job & Salary can I get with a law degree and fluent in Japanese?
I am still an undergrad but I have been obsessing on what I will do when I graduate college. I am thinking of going to law school but I don't want to be a lawyer. I have also been studying Japanese for 6 years and am fluent because I lived there a year. What kind of jobs could I do/get with these qualifications? And what kind of salary??

Look for companies with operations in both the United States and Japan. Nintendo of America is always looking for people fluent in both English and Japanese. Check out their job site (below)

If you don;t want to be a lawyer then don;t go to Law School. You could always take Japenese to a higher level and become a translator. Most important do something that you're interested in as you may be doing it until your 65!!!!!!
