I agree with the consensus too: (i) only go to law school if you want to practice law, and (ii) do a proper costs/return analysis. If you have already an established business or profession, it may be more profitable for you to focus your energies on progressing in your existing line of business (and perhaps setting up on your own) than go back to school hoping to get a higer paying job at a later date. But whatever you decide to do, be determined and you will succeed!

I don't understand why you need either degree.

How specifically will either degree help you further your business?
