Megan’s Answer

Hello Kevin, that's a good question. Here in the United States, lawyers generally obtain their initial training through law school, and then follow the necessary steps to be admitted to practice law in their state. Once they are licensed to practice law, most of a lawyer's training then comes from working on the cases or matters that they take on for their clients. Each State also requires lawyers to take Continuing Legal Education (CLE) courses to remain in good standing with the State bar and able to practice law. The number of CLE courses or hours that are required varies by State.

Hi Kevin,
I really like how you asked about the "tools" of the job. For your area of interest under the "protective services" industry, such as security guards, probation officers, and police offices to name a few.

Your goal is to figure out in what capacity do you want to protect and serve. All aspects of life need protection.

When I think about kids in school (elementary, middle, high school or college), I think safety officers.
When I think about people in prison, I think violators (mild offenses to severe) and corrections officers. When they get out of prison, I think probation officers. What about celebrities, they need security and protection too.

Kevin, keep thinking of different scenarios and image the best situation for you. Get yourself in a position of preparedness with the appropriate tools that will help you be your best to protect and serve.
