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. An IP lawyer should know
basic scientific principles in order to draft patent applications.
It also helps to become meticulous in thinking and in keeping track
of records. Take courses in business, accounting, English,
computers, and government as well.
