JD/PharmD for Patent Law?

USC, Maryland, Florida, and some other schools have a JD/PharmD program where you can get both in 4 total years. How helpful would the PharmD part be in getting a good IP law job?

You know what, I want to add on to your question...I will be conferring a PharmD in May 2008 and am wondering how helpful it would be to go to Law School and get a JD for a patent job.

Don't consider PharmD/JD instead consider (BSEE/MSEE)/JD.

I looked into this a number of years ago. At that time a PharmD wasn't a sufficient degree to sit for the patent bar under the degree option. Instead you would be required to prove your technical background with classes. I don't know if this is still the case since I last looked into it my freshman year of college(when I was a pre-pharmacy student).
 
I would imagine that you would need a large number of classes going in to even qualify for one of these programs since the doctor of pharmacy degree is at least as long as the JD normally(4 years at Purdue with the last year including clinicals, I can't say for other schools) after a two year pre-pharmacy cirriculum.
