As the premier legal advisor to technology, life sciences, and growth enterprises worldwide, Wilson Sonsini Goodrich & Rosati provides an excellent environment for law students and attorneys who wish to make use of their technical and scientific degrees and experience. Several of the firm's practices are particularly well suited for this opportunity, including patents and innovations and technology transactions.

We are sometimes asked whether you need a technical or scientific degree to thrive at the firm. While many of our attorneys do have such degrees, many more do not and do quite well at the firm. In addition, many attorneys with technical or scientific degrees practice in areas that do not require notable technical proficiency.
