Is a career change from marketing to law viable?

I will be turning 30 next year and, after almost a decade working in marketing, I want to go back to school and study law. It was something I wanted to do when I started college in the first place but I lacked the grades.

I have no doubt about my ability to pass the exams or be a good lawyer, but I wonder if I have left it a little late. Is there still time to start a legal career and are there are particular areas I might be better off focusing on?
