Minority and Non-Traditional Law Students / IP Law...

I am a practicing pharmacist with an interest in IP law.  I would like to learn more about the field though.  Perhaps find a firm close to my area that has a focus in IP law.  Does anybody know of any decent resources for more information?  I have already looked at the IP section of the ABA website and I just didn't find it all that informative.  Is there a database or search engine that would be useful in finding lawyers in my area that specialize in IP law?  Thank you for any help you may give.  I have not yet started law school, and I would like to know a bit more about what I am trying to do before I suck up another 100k in debt.

Jack24,  I am considering IP Law but I assumed that those positions were quite a bit harder to come by.  I don't really have the option of going to a highly ranked school, kids have me tied to Charleston so IP seems like a huge mountain of a struggle.

Thanks everybody for chiming in.

Evening all.  Looking for a few opinions here.  I am a recent PharmD graduate and am currently working as a Pharmacist for a major retail pharmacy chain.  I started developing an interest in law school in my last two years of pharmacy school.  I am quite interested in pharmacy practice type law and have at least a passing interest in corporate representation.  I am interested to see if anybody out there has looked into the PharmD/JD combination.  Is there much demand out there for someone with those credentials?  I also keep reading that law school ranking is important when entering the job market, does anybody know how much impact a school's ranking really has on the ability to land a decent job?  I'm sure I'll have more questions later as I dig deeper into the idea of going back to school.  Any insight the collective may be able to provide would be most helpful.
