Lawyers and Judges
A high school diploma, a college degree, and three years of law
school are minimum requirements for a law degree. A high school
diploma is a first step on the ladder of education that a lawyer
must climb. If you are considering a career in law, courses such as
government, history, social studies, and economics provide a solid
background for entering college-level courses. Speech courses are
also helpful to build strong communication skills necessary for the
profession. Also take advantage of any computer-related classes or
experience you can get, because lawyers and judges often use
technology to research and interpret the law, from surfing the
Internet to searching legal databases.
