need law school help

I am starting my final year of pharmacy school at Duquesne University in Pittsburgh in a few weeks and then it is off to law school next fall.  When considering law school what is more important, the tier of the school or the IP rank.  Franklin Pierce is one of the best IP schools in the country but it is also a tier 4 law school.  Is this a good school?  
 
I want to get a job as a patent attorney for a drug company so I can utilize my knowledge of pharmacology.  How is patent law different from IP law?  If I want to do patent law, should I go to a school with a good IP program?  
 
Thanks for the input  
 
also, what is the difference between a JD and a LLM or whatever

THE RANKING OF THE SCHOOL ITSELF (OVERALL RANKING) IS WHAT MATTERS for getting a job of course.  
 
However, if your choosing b/t 3 or 4th tier schools then you go to the one ranked higher in IP.

LLM is a masters, which is for one year after the JD.  
 
 
Usually foreigners get the master as a method of gaining an American Education so they can practice in a US firm. (since they have a degree from overseas)
