Brianne’s Answer

Read and learn as much as you can about career paths lawyers have. Reach out to a local attorney to ask them specific questions on what their career path has been. Try to get a part time job in a law firm to see if you really enjoy the environment and work. Also, research to understand what undergraduate major would best set you up for success. One thing to consider is having an undergrad major that still provides you with an employable skill set (Accounting, Finance, etc) as opposed to a more general degree like General Business Studies. It is helpful to have a backup plan in case you change your mind later on.

Cindy’s Answer

Collaborate with your school counselor to understand the necessary classes for law school admission. If you've already secured a spot in a college, don't hesitate to connect with their counseling team too. Explore opportunities around you; if there's a law firm nearby, consider dropping by to inquire about internships. This could provide invaluable insight into the real-world workings of a law firm. Wondering if a foreign language is required for law school? It might not be a requirement, but acquiring skills in a language like Spanish could be a significant advantage.
