nachosauce- I did the same thing, going into engineering knowing that I wanted to do law. How's the patent bar studying going? I wanted to take it this spring, but they wouldn't let me because I didn't get my undergrad degree until 2 weeks after the administration. Don't really want to take it during 1L, so I'll prob go for it fall 3L or maybe 2L if I'm feeling motivated. Woulda been nice to have before 1L summer though...
lists the requirements to sit for the patent bar. You need to be certified by the patent bar to do patent prosecution, but not necessarly to do patent litigation.
My favorite quote from engineering, courtesy of my Circuits 1 instructor:
"Now, how many of you in here are from Liberal Arts? (looks, and sees no hands up) Hmm...how many of you engineers have taken a liberal arts class? (all hands go up) And Liberal Arts majors claim to be the 'well-rounded' ones?!?"
