Hi! I was just wondering do law firms prefer people having a masters in a specialty of law such as corporate or commercial or does it not matter?

Vast majority do not do an academic masters.
They can be useful for niche knowledge and they do you no harm and are not required.

Doesn't matter. You will find people who have done these degrees but it was generally to fill a year or drastically 'upgrade' their uni brand.
