In this segment, our speakers will describe how science, technology, and the law intersect. Both have found ways to enhance their legal practices with graduate education in other fields. Specifically, one is a business lawyer with a degree in business administration who represents biotechnology startups, and the other is a trial consultant with a degree in psychology who serves as a forensic mental health trial consultant. Both have enhanced their careers by remaining exceedingly active in the ABA and other professional organizations. Our speakers will explain what drew them to the law, describe their career paths (including the pros and cons), convey what a typical (or not so typical) day of blended practice entails, and provide invaluable insight into the skills you’ll need to develop a personalized legal career of your own.
