When is it too late to get into law?
I'm really having to reconsider my career choices (I'm 26, software dev) and I feel like I really fucked up when I didn't pursue law school when I was still deciding.

its never too late to learn something new, just need some willpower

Well, yeah.
But there are points that it is too late to switch careers. Especially one as in-depth as law.

It's a particularly shitty time to go to law school, and even shittier ime to be a lawyer, op. Unless you really need to do it, don't.

Do you want to elaborate on that a little bit?

As someone considering something similar, I can provide some potential complications.

He's 26, let's assume his existing schooling get him a break going for his next degree. It's still take him until he's 30+ to get it, assuming he can go full time.

Will an employer be as accepting to a 30+ year old with no experience?
Can he get by with minimal time for work over that 4+ years? Does he drop to part time? Is that enough money?
If he continues full time, how much time will he reasonable have for school? How long would the reduced schedule take him to graduate?

No matter how he arranges it his social life, time with family, hobbies, home improvement, fitness, and anything else that could make him happy are going to tank. The question is: Are the potential benefits worth the cost, risk, and stress?

Why not learn on your own until you have a good grasp of the fundamentals and then go to school if you're still interested? That will definitely take some pressure off and let you maintain more of a life while you're in school.

with your software dev background you could concentrate on specialized fields like Intellectual Property law in the world of tech.

it's never too late to start, it's always too soon to quit
