One just doesn’t up (one day) and proclaim, “I want to be a lawyer” because the game simply doesn’t work like that. Aside from all the years of education that will be required prior to even being allow to take the bar exam, one must ask the question, “What Field of Law Do I Want To Practice?”. This is a very important question. You would be amazed at the number of licensed attorneys, some of which are successful in their respective fields, who still ask themselves that same questions.
Before setting out to become an attorney, by first suggestion would be to make a firm decision on what type of legal practice you seriously want to engage in, and which law school you are going to enroll into after college.
