I still have to get into school (got the apps out, keep your fingers crossed) but I am looking to get into criminal law. I already have the technical degree, so in theory i could go into IP law, but that just sounds like more of the same to me.
I really want to get away from working to increase someone else's bottom line, and start working helping people, which is not quite possible working in this field.
Something to keep in mind when going to lawschoolnumbers.com is that the percentage of people working in software may be highly overreported because we spend more time online than almost any other employmee segment, and as a result are likely to overreport on services like lawschoolnumbers.
I actually did write my PS about computers/technology, but it was more about how the skills required to go far in software engineering are applicable to law school.
