I am a 31 year old EE grad thinking of going to Law school and become a Patent Attorney. I will be taking the patent bar exam soon and hopefully will clear it. So I will be a patent agent even before I go to Law school.
I am thinking of going to Law school in fall this year and will be hopefully done in 3-4 years. Now, do you think it is important I go to an ABA accredited school? I can go to one of those in-expensive California Bar schools and be qualified to practise Law in California and Federal courts but NOT anywhere else.... but I am patent attorney, so why should I care? I will be saving about $50k by not going to a ABA law school.
Please let me know if this makes sense.
