I can see how a law degree can influence your strategic thinking which influences strategy development and business process. I don’t have a J.D., but I did some law courses during my undergrad and my MBA. I learnt something valuable in each of those courses. Now, they didn’t cover in depth IP, but I certainly I understand contract creation and what’s needed to make a contract. It really does follow the IPAC as you highlighted earlier.
Creativity is a wonderful thing. It’s the essence of human nature. However, a law background provides you boundaries to that creativity to make it not only worth your time, but also advantageous to you. Sound about right?
