Would law be capitalized when used as law degree?

If it was being used in a sentence such as, "Mr. Brown was studying to be a lawyer; he couldn't wait to get his law degree", you do not capitalize it. I can't think of an example when you would capitalize it. If the word is used of a body of religious law, one would capitalize it, for example, 'Moses came down from Mount Sinai with the Law'.
