In pretty much every other country, law is an undergraduate degree, so it takes about 3-4 years of school plus another year or so of unpaid or low-paid professional experience to become a lawyer.
Thank you for the question. You will need a four year degree, a Bachelor's Degree in any subject from a college/university. Choose a degree that you are interested in - it does not have to be law related. For example, you could have a 4 year degree in psychology, Spanish, Political Science, Math, etc.
After the 4 years, you would need to take the Law School admissions test (LSAT https://www.lsac.org/lsat) apply to law school and it is generally a 3 year degree, if you attend full-time.
Looking back, maybe I could have taken more accounting classes, because I once had my own law firm and I was really bad at keeping records. I did hire an accountant, who told me what I needed to do. I wish I had learned more about running a business and finances for running a business.
I hope this helps!
