Intellectual Property Lawyers

Because intellectual property often deals with creations in the scientific, engineering, literary, and music worlds, a background in any of those areas will be helpful. If you are interested in combining a certain area with practicing law, you should focus on that area while in high school. Take as many science courses as possible along with technical writing.

Take courses in business, accounting, English, computers, and government as well.
