While some practice areas are suffering, there are some legal practice areas that are expanding rapidly. For instance, there is a growing demand for space lawyers. These professionals help solve issues related to the outer space. This has been well elaborated in the article titled, “Outer Space May Rescue US Lawyers From A Saturated Job Market,” released by International Business Times on 2 October. Opportunities for lawyers with a specialization in space exploration are on the rise because space law is fast becoming a vital part of the aerospace industry. Similarly more employment opportunities are being created in the Twin Cities for select second and third year students. Eight students have been selected to work for people who have been wronged. The research, training and experience gathered through the ‘Benjamin B. Ferencz Fellowships at World Without Genocide’ will enable these students to be better prepared to face legal challenges related to Human Rights after the completion of their graduation. Moreover, they will be at an advantageous position as they will get better placements.
