How to become a lawyer?

Im 14 and going into high school next year. I’ve decieded that I want to be a lawyer when I get older. But I wanna know more about the career. Does anybody know anything about the school needed, how long it takes to become one, the income, and how to become a well known lawyer?

Answer #1

The LSAT is the test you have to take to get into law school. The bar exam is what you take after you graduate. Once you pass the bar exam you officially become a lawyer.

Answer #2

You’ve got to get thru a 4 year college first, then you apply to Law Schools…Law School takes 3 to 4 years to complete (some people have to work and go to school, so even longer)…then you must pass the Bar Exam for whatever state you plan to practice in.

To be a ‘well known lawyer’, you’ve got to be very good at the particular type of law you’ve chosen. Most famous layers are criminal trial attornies…and that takes a good deal of acting talent to go along with your ability at law in and of itself.

Answer #3
