Q: What would be the best areas of law to practice with a math degree?
A: One of the hot areas right now is patent law, especially in the area of software. Certainly with your background, you would have the advantage of being able to understand the technical aspects of the software. You need to be specially licensed to practice patent law. If you are currently in law school, you might want to discuss the field with a professor that teaches patent law.
