I am thinking of going to law school at night to work on my JD. My interest are in IP/Govt. Regulations. I have a B.S. in Chemistry and Chemical Engineering and a PhD in Chemistry.
For the last 4 years I have been working for a large pharma in NJ, looking at rules and regulations governing drug development. Now I am planning to move to a smaller company close to Boston, and attend New England School of Law.
Do you know what my legal employment prospects will be like once I graduate? I have no desire to work for a top notch law firm (or any law firm for that matter). I am considering working for biotech companies in legal division. With great law schools abound in the Boston area, how will I fare going to New England School of Law? I am not looking to earn top $$$, but recive a fair compensation after I graduate. I will be getting pretty well compensated + tuition reimbursements by going to school at night, so I will not be too much in debt.
Do you guys have any suggestion, opinions? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
