Hi Shayla: As a kid from the Bronx I figured that since I'm a kid from Brooklyn I should give this a shot!
Wayne has laid out the 6 basic steps needed to become a lawyer. He is spot on. However, the road to becoming a lawyer is a bit different. First, you must be true to yourself. As you go through school take the courses that you enjoy, that you find fun and interesting. Do not try to force yourself into doing things you will regret later because you think it will help you be a lawyer. Lawyers come in all sorts of shapes and sizes. Being true to yourself helps you become a better person and a better lawyer. Second, be open to different ideas and different paths. Life is like ice cream - you need to try several flavors until you find the flavor you like. Third, go to the Courthouses on 161st St. Go in and watch what goes on. It's a great learning experience. The main courthouse is on 161st and the Concourse. The criminal courthouse is down 161st (In the oposite direction of Yankee Stadium). Go watch. You will learn a great deal! Finally, keep your nose clean! Your background is checked and re-checked as you apply for admission to the bar. I am/was admitted to the bar in 3 states - trust me they check! So stay in school, have fun, enjoy your classes, be yourself and follow Wayne's 6 steps!!! Good luck.

Nice to meet you.
I write from Chile 🇨🇱.
About your question:
Today be a Lawyer is think in more than a career in a way of life where your Lighthouse is the true and the rights of the people. Fight with the tools adequate and necessary to defend the more helpless.
Sometimes (I wish the best) you win, sometimes you lose, but in both cases with all your love for what you do.
Good luck.
Regards 👍
