How do you gain experience in the legal field as a high school student?

I've been interested in pursuing a career as a lawyer for a while now, but given that it is a fairly expensive and lengthy process, I want to gain exposure to the field to ensure that it is actually something I'm committed to pursuing. I'm especially interested in becoming a public interest lawyer or a litigation lawyer. Most internships available in my area (Houston) are reserved for law students who have completed their first or second year. Any recommendations? I have already contacted the D.A.'s office and the local Bar Association. #law #lawyer #career #internships #criminal-justice #attorney #public-interest-law
