Is a Joint JD/MBA necessary for In House Counsel

Postby artfuldodger23 » Wed Aug 15, 2012 12:31 am

I was wondering if the Joint JD/MBA is necessary if one wants to pursue the in-house counsel or corporate attorney (transactional/mergers and acquisitions) route. I will be getting my bachelors in business (Economics and Finance) so is it even worth it picking up the MBA along with the JD? I searched the forums w/ the search function and couldn't fine a clear consensus on whether it's necessary and if it's worth it overall. Any help would be greatly appreciated

Thanks

Neither necessary nor sufficient.

Would an MBA be helpful though?
