I've read before that a BA in a science field can take the Patent bar and practice intellectual law without a JD. Have you thought about looking into that?
Hello Law Schoool Discussion Board,I'm a mechanical engineer in my late 20's whose lost admiration for the once proud proffession. There are many reasons why I'm choosing to walk away from the field, the primary reason being my lacklustre compensation I've been recieiving for the past couple years.I've been pondering Law School for the past few months and have some questions. 1) Aside from the court room, what other jobs can a lawyer score?2) I have a background in project managment as well as business managment, can a law degree help me bolster these two career paths?3) How competative is the education, I'm fairly confident I can get into law school, but what is a typical minimum GPA? I'm sure I can surpass it, but I want to get an idea of how many late nights in the study hall I'm going to endure.4) If I'm not going to work in the legal system, is a law degree transferable to other countries?Thanks!
