Some background: I'm no spring chicken. I have my BS, an MBA, and an MSIE. I've been in the Medical Device industry for 10 years and am a Certified Six Sigma Black Belt and ISO Lead Assessor.
For some reason, I've been debating whether a Law degree would be helpful going forward. I have had quite a few folks both old enough and smart enough for me to shut up and listen tell me that I'd be nuts NOT to do it, even if I have no intention of ever setting foot inside a courtroom (which I don't).
I work full-time, and don't have a lot of cash laying around collecting dust, so loans would be required. No problem, provided the investment pays off at the end. I will not leave my current job, though. Not a chance.
So, here are the questions:
1) Are there any reputable and/or accredited law schools that allow students to study at night?
2) What opportunities get opened for an individual with a law degree (and who passes the Bar, of course), but who does not wish to make law his primary career?
