I don't really know what kind of a job I want yet, and I don't even know if I would want to become a lawyer. Do you think a law degree is good for me, or is finance a 'safer' choice?

They are both great choices with good salaries but no one can answer which is better for you apart from yourself as you are the only person who knows what's right for you. Do not go for finance just because it is the 'safer' option because you probably won't enjoy it if you're choosing it on that basis. With regards to a law degree there are definitely more jobs available afterwards than becoming a lawyer. Try and get some experience in these chosen fields before you make any decisions. Also look at the area which you live in. Do you want to live there in the future? If so are there more finance or law opportunities? Don't let that be the basis of your decision but look into it anyway.

You don't need a law degree to become a lawyer.

Also, a degree in something business/finance related could be helpful in applications to commercial law firms.

What do you mean when you ask if finance is a 'safer' choice?
