Or would I need to start over again as AC/BA or get my MBA. I’d much rather get my MBA thru sponsorship and MBBs seem to have a better package for grad school compared to other firms.

Right now, I do criminal and domestic law. I'm seriously burned out. I'm looking at corporate and other litigation positions. A lot of them are related to contract work (as in reviewing, preparing, etc.).

I'm a fast learner and want to show I'm more than an entry-level hire.
