Question about Patent Law
« on: July 01, 2009, 06:22:23 PM »
Hey. I am majoring in engineering for UG. I am interested in goint to law school. It seems there is much less competition for patent attorneys, so my chances of getting into a better school would increase if I showed that I choose a path to practice patent law. Am I right?

As far as I know in law school there is no specific specialization field that you choose besides your coursework. (It's nothing like a UG major). So how can I indicate that I am interested in patent law on an application for example? And will they take that into consideration somehow?

I am mainly wondering if there is a way I can emphasize my UG field and interest in patent law to increase my chances of getting accepted at a school.

I don't think it makes much of a difference for admission. It does make a difference in hiring. The way you express your interest to employers is pass the patent bar- you then become valuable.
