I was always curious why there aren't more fields of specializations in the law aside from just patent law. For example, shouldn't there be a specialized bar for, let's say, government law? Those wishing to practice as an attorney for federal, state, and local governments would have to be an admitted government attorney. The requirement to be a government attorney should be a bachelor's or higher in political science.
The fact that political science is not considered a "technical" or "STEM" degree does not make any sense to me whatsoever. Both science and mathematics are involved in political science, so why does it not make the cut? I always laughed in my mind when law professors said you needed a "science" degree to be admitted to the patent bar. Political SCIENCE, need I say more? I digress.
I can understand why there would be no specializations for those only with a humanities degree, but for rigorous degrees such as political science, there should be a special place in the law.
