i'm going into eleventh grade and am considering becoming a criminal trial lawyer. what should i expect from the career?

last year in my english class, we read a book about a jury trying to come to a unanimous vote followed by a class trial based on a real case and i found it fascinating, it was my favorite unit of the class. thinking about it further made me think that maybe being a criminal trial lawyer could be for me (maybe for the prosecution's side). i don't fully know what like an average week/day looks like though. stuff like if the schedule set or if it's spontaneous, how much paperwork is done on a daily work day, etc.

Do public defenders have the same requirement as lawyers (Bar exam, etc) ?

Aren't they technically government employees? Does that require any extra effort or tasks? #lawyer #attorney #criminal-defense

Does taking the multi state bar exam give you more options?

When I was looking up bar exams I found that they had multi state exam and from what I know is that when you take the test is that you are not pressured to work in a specific state. And I was just wondering if it is better to take a bar exam for a specific state or is it better to take the multi state test. Thank You #lawyer #criminal-law #criminal-defense

What career can I be in my favor, since I passion for fixing the criminal justice system and being able to help people by listen to them and understanding their mindset behind their actions?

My name is Aiyana, I am a senior in high school, who struggled but later on understood my mindset and what caused me to struggle to change. Through overcoming and reflexing I learned a lot about myself and that lead me to build a passion to help other who are in need for help and someone to just listen to their problems. I am also on the debate team at my school and have a passion for arguing and finding justice in what's unfair by giving each person their fair dues. Fixing the broken criminal justice system is very complex and difficult, however I believe it can and needs to be fixed. Understanding the system I realized that their is valid evidence for everything and investigating is something that I am good at making me love criminology and Forensic science the evidence can not lie and I like to have proof or reason to understand the situation. I will be starting college in the fall of 2016 and I'll be majoring in Psychology as a starting point for me. I am asking this question because I have researched and it not likely for me to find a job right after college in the field that I am. I also want to combine the things I love doing to benefit me in the future. #criminology #forensic-psychology #criminal-defense
