Real Estate Lawyers
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
business, 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. Take as many writing classes
as possible during high school to strengthen your writing skills.
Lawyers spend a tremendous amount of time writing briefs,
contracts, and depositions for their cases. Also take advantage of
any computer-related classes or experience you can get, because
lawyers often use technology to research and interpret the law,
from surfing the Internet to searching legal databases.
