I would say that a law degree complinents an engineering degree quite nicely, especially if patent law is what you ultimately wish to do. An undergraduate degree in engineering + JD + patent bar = highly employable. Majority of law school entrants still consist of humanities majors. The science and technical degrees still constitute a relatively small fraction of law school graduates. Electrical and computer engineers are especially sought after.

You will have to appear for LSAT(Law school admission Test) and also give your TOEFL. The undergraduate Law degree in the U.S is for 3 years and it very expensive. You also need to get recommendation letters from your Professors. You can go to www.Lsat.com, which will give u information about LSAT and also links to the Law school in the U.S.

u CAN FOCUS ON Intellectual Property Law in your J.D or top it up with an LL.M specializing in Intellectual Poperty Laws.

Hi I am also a person pursuing law degree after engineering.
As far as i know, it is impossible to conduct PG directly after your B.eng.
You would first require to attend J.D. or LL.B.
For you, J.D. is seemed fit to you.
Good luck.

In order to be able to attend an LL.M. Program, you must:
1. Preferably, hold a first degree in law; or (if thats not the case)
2. Have relevant work experience in law related issues.

As you can imagine, an LL.M., being a Master Program, is suited to students with basic knowledge and used to deal with the reasoning and methods inherent to the law practice.
Therefore, a graduate student in engineering, in order to switch to the law field should, in my opinion:
1. Obtain a first degree in law;
2. Make a post-graduation or some general introductory course (eg, summer Program)

And only after that try to apply to an LL.M.

Good luck

I doubt a BE in engineering is sufficient for admission to an LLM. usually an undergrad degree - JD, LLB is pre-essential. the rare exceptions are graduates from other allied fields such as sociology, politicial sciences, etc. who may get a 'waiver'. Much of an LLM course is academically rigourous even for JDs/LLBs and it may be extremely hard for an engineer to start off with.

I agree with JSD.

I have a degree in Chemical Engineering. I then did a B.A. in Law and only now am I applying to do an LLM.

LLM degree is meant as higher level to a basic law degree. It's quite impossible to jump into an advanced law degree having not done a basic law degree. You guys ought to consider a J.D. or an undergraduate degree in law.

Hey I am from India. Currently I am in final year of engineering and I want to pursue law. Not the IPR thing. I mean Law in its entirety - civil, criminal et al. Please guide me.

Hi.. Im Ananya from India. I am in my final year of engineering in the field of Information Technology and will pass out this May. I really want to do law after this. But also, I don't want to do another undergraduate course after this. Is there any way I can do a PG in law?
