If you are looking for a good all round degree then Law is a good basis for many different types of careers, but I'm biased since that's what I did :)
Ah I see well definitely Law in that case. At first you will have to an undergraduate degree which will have set subjects needed to qualify (criminal, land..etc.) but you can then choose to specialize in Human Rights and perhaps a theory based module. I'm in the UK of course so in the US it might be slightly different.
Well you could eventually work your way up. Unfortunately with both Psychology and Law you will have to start at the bottom of the ladder and do any work you can get in order to gain experience. You could always volunteer at a legal aid/human rights charity which would help you to go immediately into that kind of work once you graduate. You're not immediately going to do exactly what you want...unless you're extremely gifted and lucky but put the work and you will get there.
Ah I see that's good then because its quite similar to our system. I think a joint honours degree is the way to go for you, Law and Psychology go together really well, A few people in my lectures at uni did both.
I just did a single honours LLB in Law. Like all law degrees If I want to be a Solicitor or Barrister I will have to go back to Uni for one more year to do a "Practice course" which gives graduates the practical knowledge needed.
It's always difficult to choose what to do but both sound good :)
There is no such thing as justice.<br />
I don't think anyone ever became a lawyer for any reason other than money and power.<br />
It's really a bottom-of-the-barrel profession. I have more respect for pimps and drug dealers.
I think you can. I've never known a lawyer who wasn't a total scumbag.
What does psychology has to do with justice?
Psychology might be quite interesting; the same with law ... It depends on what you will do with it later. Like, if you study literature, it doesn't mean you are going to be a writer..
I would say law if your talking about existing and past human justice.
Law would be great and you may learn psychology some point cos it's essential..
