Realistic Aspirations?

Postby MarsBlackman » Fri Apr 01, 2011 8:16 am

I'm an Engineering Science & Mechanics with one year left of undergrad. I plan on gaining 2-4 years of work experience before applying to law school. While an undergraduate, I have gained an interest in China. I am currently there this semester studying Mandarin Chinese which I plan to continue once I return stateside. I've already received a job offer from an American manufacturing company I worked for last semester to work in both the US and China for 3 months at a time, perhaps longer stays. I will probably take the offer. As an engineer, I'm obviously interested in IP law, but also international law with China.

Is there some possible way to blend the two, possibly aiding U.S. companies in setting up their businesses in China while still understanding their product and patent rights? I have already read the China law post on this website. I believe everything is attainable but is this too much of a niche field? Obviously, its a marathon and not a race. I have not taken the LSAT yet, but because I will be working, does it really matter when I take it in relation to graduation?

Any help and input would be appreciated.

Welcome to what will probably be one of the most sought after skills for the next 20 years (although you might end up helping Chinese companies set up American operations).

As for LSAT timing, if you're working for a couple of years then just do that. Secure a letter of rec from a professor now, take the June LSAT the year before you want to enroll in LS, and get a letter of rec from your employer. You'll be golden.
