Judith Hasko was working as a research scientist at the cardiovascular research department at Genentech when she thought of becoming a lawyer. At the time, Hasko, who has an undergraduate degree in biopsychology and a master’s in neurobiology, had all but committed to pursue a Ph.D. — but she went to law school instead.

“I was fascinated with science and research, but I also like to write and communicate, and I got really interested in the business side of biotechnology at Genentech,” Hasko said. “I saw that the lawyers are the ones helping to commercialize a lot of our research, and I thought it would be a good position to still pursue my interest in biology and do something for a change.”
