To me success will be measured by my ability as an attorney as well as my stipend coming out LS. I aspire to practice IP Law, although I do not have a technical background (i'm Poli Sci). I just think I would be a tremendous IP litigator, and that I could truly be a great attorney. I am also considering transactional, a & m, corp sec., among other legal disciplines as well. Please keep the advice coming! <3
Ok, I don't mean to be the douchey negative guy but give me a break man. I got over you wanting biglaw more than anything else, you can overcome your situation and make it, I am quite sure it's happened before. But now you just aren't making any sense, IP law and no technical background whatsoever? Are you planning on doing a little engineering or biochem while in law school? Retake the LSAT and shoot for the best school you can, but seriously, I say this in the most honest advice giving way possible, drop the IP dream, you don't meet the qualifications, and with ZERO technical background, you can be a hell of an attorney but would suck ass at IP. If IP is something you wanted so bad you should have started working on that a very long time ago. I want to be an aeronautical engineer but could hardly pass calc 1, you need to sit down and consider your limitations, and set realistic goals.
