Tips for college student interested in IP Law?

Reposting here from the legal forum.

Hello everyone, I've been following the Apple-Samsung trial, and it's counterparts through the world and have taken an interest in IP and patent law. I'm currently in college and plan to major in Political Science and go to law school. I know Political Science is common, but I do have an interest in it.

I've read to pursue patent law you need a math/science/engineering degree, is that true?
