how many years of school does it take to become a lawyer?
im interested in law but have no idea how much year ill need to spend in school.
The traditional path is a four-year undergraduate degree (most common majors are English or Political Science, but you can get into law school with any degree), then a three-year law program. Following this you will need to pass the Bar exam to become certified. Many law schools require you to take the LSAT prior to you entering their program as well.
Hope this helps!
In college, any of the above is also a good idea. As Michael states, any undergraduate major is OK for a perspective lawyer, again keeping in mind that one requiring writing, speaking and logic is a good idea. For me, an undergraduate degree in Journalism/Mass Communication (emphasizing newspaper and radio news) was a great choice. Also, I was very glad I took a few political science courses to boot.
You will need to prepare for and take the LSAT. Then in law school, use your time well. Consider listening to study aids instead of only hitting the books, and becoming involved in extracurricular activities.
