Law and finance
The link between physics and jobs in law or finance may not be obvious, but many people with a physics background work in these areas.
In finance, it is a physicist's ability to model complex systems that is particularly valued; billions of pounds rest on predicting the future behaviour of global markets. A physics education is also important to law - forensics requires a detailed understanding of how objects move and the forces involved when analyzing the scene of a crime or accident. Patent lawyers on the other hand need to understand new technology in order to effectively protect new inventions.
