Thinking about starting law school at the age of 30 after ~6 years in consulting. Dont have much in savings and will likely have to take ~300k in debt and put off acquiring a house for 10 years. For those that have been to law school, how much free time do you get at a top 2 law school to work on a start-up? Not interested in b-school because I want to have the capability to pursue lawsuits without having to rely on a law firm, however intend to go into the startup/venture scene post-law school.
