It sounds as if you have a good career.  If you decide that you want to attend law school, I would apply to a law school that is well known, for the courses in entertainment law, so that you can build on your work experience, or schools that have a lot of business law courses, and are strong, in this area.  You may want a JD-MBA program.  Currently, the job market is tight, for lawyers.  Perhaps this is why you do not have many responses, to your inquiry. When applying to law school, if you like entertainment law, I would encourage you to emphasize this, when you apply. I would research the area of "entertainment law/sports law," and try to contact attorneys who work in this arena, to get their advice on admission to law school, and see what guidance they can offer, before applying to law school.  Also, contact professors at law schools, who teach in these subjects, before applying to law school, to ask how it can enhance your career, in the field that you work in.  Do this in advance of taking the LSAT or applying to school, to prepare for admission.  Study and prepare well, for the LSAT.

Since you are an M.D., you may want to focus on courses involving health law.  I do not know what states you are interested in attending law school.  University of Houston has a L.L.M. degree, which is earned after a J.D., in Health Law.  I encourage you to attend in a city where you would attend law school, and then find employment after law school, in that same city.  You may need to be in one of the 10 largest cities in the nation.  Investigate which law schools offer a lot of health law courses, in their J.D. program.  If this area of the law interests you, it will build on your experience as a doctor, and may open doors in the medical area.  Houston has the 3rd largest health center in the country.  Whatever state you live in, if you want to stay in that state, consider applying to the law schools in the largest cities of your state.  See which law schools offer "health law" institute programs.  Also, take guardianship and elder law courses, in law school.

Thanks for the answer given to the posed question.

It helped me, as I am pondering an L.L.M.
