It is a wide-ranging field that also encompasses more than 60 JD-Advantage job titles, positions for which a legal education gives applicants an advantage in the hiring process. Financial services is in constant flux, buffeted by continuous congressional churn, state legislative tweaking, international organization pronouncements, and a virtual tsunami of court and administrative decisions, rules, legal opinions, and enforcement actions by many regulatory and administrative agencies. Anytime you run across a practice area in which change is a constant and populated by multiple players, that is very good news for attorneys.

Depending on the definition, the financial services sector constitutes about 20 percent of U.S. Gross Domestic Product (GDP), or one-fifth of the economy.
