Intellectual property law falls into three areas. The first is registration/prosecution for copyrights, trademarks and patents. That kind of work generally is not particularly interesting and can be repetitive and mundane. The second is licensing of intellectual property which can be somewhat more interesting as some arrangements may require nuance and special provisions that need to negotiated and drafted. The third area is litigation, in either defending against infringement or license breaches or bringing an action for the same on behalf of an owner or licensee of the intellectual property which also can be interesting. Of course overall, the role of an IP lawyer is also advising clients of their rights and liabilities when intellectual property, there's or others, comes into play in their business. Just as in any other area of law it can pay well or not depending on the size and profile of the clients you represent, and just as in any area of law it can be difficult finding employment unless you graduate from a top law school with top grades.
Do a google search for "American Bar Association in (your city)." Then click on the heading that says "Pro Bono." That should give you a list of all of the lawyers in your city that will work for free. Good luck.
