Thank you for reminding me of the confusion of using guest as a name.  From now on, I'll use TripleJ.
 
And FWIW, after I wrote the last post I found a PharmD/JD dual program at Maryland also, but the description listed practice areas such as health care law and science policy; it never mentioned--from what I saw--anything about intellectual property.  This leads me to believe that maybe a PharmD/JD wouldn't be the best/easiest route to becoming an IP lawyer.  But that's just my opinion.

You don't need to go to an "IP School" to be an IP lawyer or even a patent lawyer.  If the school of your choice offers IP course, by all means take them, but don't select a school on the basis of how many IP courses are offered.

The description I gave is not about the Unviersity of Maryland's School of Law in general.  Rather, it is a description of the PharmD/JD dual program given on the dual program's website.
 
The point that I was trying to make was that if the school offering the PharmD/JD dual program doesn't even consider IP to be a reason to enter the dual program, then it's not very likely that a PharmD/JD is a good way to get into--or a good way to prepare for--intellectual property law.
 
I wasn't trying to say that University of Maryland isn't an "IP school" so someone interested in doing IP shouldn't go there.  I guess what I was saying was that someone interested in doing IP who wants to go into a dual degree program as a way to earn an advanced degree in science might consider an MS/JD or PhD/JD program over a PharmD/JD program.  I hope that is a little clearer.  Smiley
