Anh’s Answer

Agree with the previous comment that you should try to get a job as a law clerk, file clerk, or legal assistant at a law firm to see what the day-to-day work is like for lawyers.

One commonality across most practices for lawyers is the amount of time spent reading and writing, especially in your first couple of years of practice. One way to prepare yourself is to read a lot. If you naturally already like reading, challenge yourself with your reading materials. Read things that don't particularly interest you. Read things that are complex. Then practice explaining complex ideas to different audiences (friends, family, classmates). These are some baseline skills that will help you at this stage in your life. You will add additional skillsets in college, law school, and at your first job.

Victoria’s Answer

Definitely recommend getting an internship or part time job at a law firm so you can get a first hand look and determine if this is something that you want to do! Getting that inside look will prepare you on what is done behind the scenes and how team work is a big part of getting cases done.
