How To Become A Lawyer

Lawyers (also known as attorneys) act as society advisors and advocates for a broad range of issues. As advisors, they advise their clients about their legal rights and responsibilities and recommend certain courses of action in personal and business issues. To become a lawyer, it typically takes 7 years of full-time education with 4 years of undergraduate study and 3 years of law school. Students applying to law school must have a bachelor degree and are required to take the Law School Admission Test (LSAT). Employment of lawyers is projected to grow about as fast as average for all professions, increasing 11% from 2006 to 2016.
