Law enforcement and becoming a Lawyer might not be the same. Law enforcement sometimes means being a policeman who makes sure that people follow the law. A Lawyer is one that works with people to interpret the law and prosecutes or defends them in the courts. A good start is to talk to your school counselor about taking interest and aptitude tests to see with which career areas your interest are aligned. Also, talk to your school counselor about talking to graduates of your school who have become Policemen (or other people your counselor can identify as being in law enforcement) and Lawyers, so that you an get a better idea of which field you might want to pursue. Many people who got into Law Enforcement or Law get their start at a community college, so they can get a good education without accumulating large student loans. Talk to the alumni relations person at your local community college to talk to graduates who have gone into Law Enforcement and Law. Send a thank you note to those people who help you. Good luck! I will be happy to help further if I can.
