Patent Law Job Market for Chem. Eng.

Postby mvanmaele » Sat Jul 27, 2013 4:50 pm

Hello! I would love to get your opinions on the following question: what sort of demand may (or may not) exist in the patent law job market for my technical background?

I graduated with honors from a top 15 school with a B.S. in Biomedical Engineering and an M.S.E. in Chemical & Biomolecular Engineering. My M.S.E. consisted of coursework only (no thesis), but I am the lead author on a research article published this year. I now work at a biodefense contractor and I plan to spend 1-2 years there before matriculating law school. Based on my numbers I'm applying at several of the top 15 schools that jive with me.

As I understand it, EE/CS is more popular than bio in terms of hiring prospects. However, I would love to know how Chem. Eng. fits into the picture. Any advice you can give me on top of that would be much appreciated!

Thanks!

HIGH! I am jealous. Almost every IP employer is looking for this background. It's basically a requirement now for IP.
