To become a lawyer, you will probably need to go to college (usually 4 years) and then law school (3 years). A lot of law school students come in with some work experience, which is usually pretty helpful as well! If you think you want to be a lawyer, try to get internships that give you access to people who are lawyers. Observe them closely and ask them questions. Since you're in the 11th grade, you have plenty of time to do this. Since law school is pretty expensive and time-consuming, it's important to be as sure of your decision as you can before committing! Best of luck!
