21st Century Legal Career Series Volume 5 - “Soft” IP Law

21st Century Legal Career Series Volume 5 - “Soft” IP Law

Richard L. Hermann, 2017.

This is the best time in history to contemplate a legal career in intellectual property (IP) regardless of your educational background aside from law school. Whether you combine your law degree with a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) background, or come to law from a purely liberal arts orientation, there are exciting  opportunities for you in intellectual property.

Soft IP opportunities for non-STEM lawyers are everywhere…and everywhere expanding. IP has changed dramatically in the 21st century and now encompasses far more than patent law, which for the first 200 years of U.S. history was virtually the be-all and end-all of IP law, the only IP arena where there was strong demand for legal services and where an IP attorney could actually make a living.

Contents include:

  • What Makes Soft IP Law So “Hot?”—The Emergence of Soft IP
  • Who Hires: JD Advantage Soft IP Job Opportunities
  • Breaking into Soft IP Law
  • What Does It Pay?
  • How to Get Advance Notice of Soft IP Job Opportunities
  • And More!
