Jessica’s Answer

Hello! Yes, you need to have a law degree to become a lawyer. After completing your undergraduate studies you can go to law school and complete a JD program. After that, you take the bar and become a lawyer.

Yes, you do, but some accredited programs allow you to attend online and at night. The typical accredited day program takes 3 years to complete.

Chad’s Answer

These days, yes. (There was a time when this perhaps wasn't necessary.) Some law schools (very few, in the US) will actually take students into law school before they finish undergrad. I did it, and wouldn't recommend the path. I was too young as a law student!
