Heck no.

1. Was a litigation attorney in Texas 30 year ago.
2. Moved to California.
3. Took two extension classes (C programming and the UNIX operating system) at a local university.
4. Took the California bar exam.
5. Took a job programming at a small cross compiler company, wrote the ANSI C runtime library, a RAM disk controller and a command driver.
6. Found out I had passed the bar exam and was qualified to practice law in California.
7. Never looked back.

All you need is some knowledge, a lot of passion, and a knack for it.
