To become a lawyer, you will need to get a college degree and a
law degree after you graduate from high school. To start preparing
for this later education and career, take a college preparatory
curriculum, including math, science, and even a foreign language,
while in high school. Be sure to take courses in social studies,
government, history, and economics to prepare for law studies.
English courses are also important for building your writing,
researching, and speaking skills. And because lawyers often use
technology to research and interpret the law, take advantage of any
computer-related classes or experience you can get. Even surfing
the Internet can provide experience in doing research online.
