Once you get out, odds are pretty high that you'll start your legal career making less than you did as an engineer

Pardon me for being a buttinski, but I just wanted to comment here.

As a lawyer with specialized engineering knowledge, I would imagine that you would be well suited for {insert engineering speciality here} law, and that as a double threat, you could do quite well.

I have a friend who got her Ph.D. in Computer Science in the 1980s, then turned around and went back to school and got her law degree. The reason being, she saw a lot of legal issues that would be coming up in the new world of computers and internet and she wanted to be on the ground floor of what she saw as a fascinating career.

I will now try to stop being a buttinski.
