  • Should I do patent Law??

    Hi,

    I'm an electrical engineer, currently finishing up a Master's degree in
    semiconductor electronics. A friend of mine mentioned that I should get
    into patent law. Could someone answer the following questions for me?

    1) Would my engineering background help me get hired by a good law firm?

    2) Is patent law rewarding? How do I know if this is something for me?

    3) What is the money like? If looking purely at income, would I be
    better off getting hired as a design engineer in silicon valley, or
    investing another 3 years (going into significant debt) and getting
    hired as a patent lawyer?

    Can anyone out there with a similar background answer any of these for me?

    Thanks.
Working...
