Thanks for the opinions guys.
I guess I consider my situation pretty non-traditional at least from a chemists perspective. From what I've researched online, people have varying opinions on the prospect of getting a job with a PhD. But in my time researching the career, I've come across a couple PhD/JD attorneys (we had one at the patent office I interned at). When I search the internet for patent law employment, I see several that are looking specifically for advanced degree candidates. The attorney I spoke with highly recommended the career (she has the same background as I do) and saw a stronger and stronger desire for PhD patent attorneys. But who's so say what the job market will look like in 4 years, though I have researched that the patent field has not been as hard hit as the rest of the legal community and is actually experiencing some growth. All I know is that I was pleasantly surprised with how much I enjoyed working with patents.
