science and law?

Postby ikir » Fri Apr 02, 2010 7:22 pm

hello. im a sophomore now, and ive been heading down the pre-med path. my roommate, however, suggested i should do law since i have a very high gpa and will probably do well on the lsat. the thing is, i still enjoy science, so if i were enter law, i would need to do something that involves it. all i can really think of is malpractice law, though.

can you guys tell me about more areas in law that involve science? i will definitely consider law if i can find something i will enjoy. thanks.

there's intellectual property law, but really...if you enjoy science that much, i suggest you pursue that instead of law.

I'm not particularly interested in law & science so I can't answer you directly, but UC Hastings has developed what seems to be a very good program in conjunction with UCSF. Maybe this will provide some insight for you: --LinkRemoved--

Put the question of science aside for as second.

Do you know what practicing law is like and do you like it?

I am a science guy. I majored in Engineering, Math, and finally end up Computer Science. I end up liking law more than science. But it was a natural progression, I didn't convince myself to pursue law over science. It wasn't a practical, or rational decision.

You should look into if you like law. Take a Con Law for elective, and see if you like anything related to law.
