Not really the response you were looking for, but I would check what classes you can even take. While your law school may not care which classes you take, the CS and EE departments are likely to be very restrictive on which classes they will allow you to enroll in. If you don't have the background core classes, then the department may not allow you to enroll in many of the courses. I find it unlikely that the grad side of the department will allow you to enroll in an advanced data mining or advanced circuit design course without the standard database theory or electronics courses. Not saying you won't be able to do it, just wanted to make sure you look into what classes you would even be able to enroll in without the core undergraduate background.

That said, I would look into information theory classes for CS and RF or chip design classes for EE.

Good points. I contacted the EE and CS departments. The EE department said it was fine as long as I contact the professor. the CS department has a lot more red tape.

If you have a strong math background, I would also recommend looking at a Digital Signal Processing or Digital Image Processing class for EE. (Granted: these recommendations may be biased to my interest areas.)
