What does the future look like for a patent attorney majoring in Biological Engineering?

I am currently majoring in biological engineering with an emphasis in biomedical engineering. Is biological engineering a good choice for becoming a patent attorney? Also would my chances of getting a job after graduation from law school be raised if I got a masters in biological engineering before or during law school? Finally would getting a masters in biomedical sciences or another life sciences be a better choice than biological engineering?

The legal market is so flooded that jobs for new attorneys are virtually non-existant. Why not become a Bio- Engineer?
