Michael’s Answer

To kickstart your journey in criminal law, the first step is to enroll in law school. Make sure to choose classes and electives that revolve around criminal law. This will give you a solid foundation. Don't forget to apply for internships, preferably at your local prosecutor's office or a legal aid office. This will give you practical experience. Additionally, be part of the criminal defense or pro-bono group at your law school. These steps will pave the way for your successful career in criminal law. Remember, every step you take brings you closer to your dream!

Edward’s Answer

All law schools require students to complete a Criminal Law course. There may be elective Criminal Law courses also -- take those
Ditto for Constitutional Law, which has a large criminal law content.
Get a job as a prosecutor for a County district attorney's office.
I'd suggest the Public Defender also, but the pay is impossible to live on!

Edward recommends the following next steps:

law school
prosecutor job
join a criminal law firm or start one
