After you earn an undergraduate degree, you will need to apply to law schools. Law schools require your LSAT score, undergraduate transcripts, essays, and recommendations. Most students take their LSAT during their junior year of college since you will need to apply to law schools your senior year. For most students, it takes 3 years for them to graduate from law school and pass the bar exam.
However, there are many schools that allow students to go to law school part time so that they can work other jobs to help pay for their education and support themselves. If you do law school part time, it will take you around 4 years to graduate.
Shannon recommends the following next steps:
- Research colleges and universities
- Research the LSAT
- Consider reaching out to lawyers in your community
