Education and Training Requirements

High School

Recommended high school classes include government, history, business, computer science, social studies, psychology, mathematics, and economics. Be sure to take as many English and speech classes as possible, because lawyers must have excellent communication skills. Learning a foreign language will be useful if you plan to work in an area that has a large number of people who do not speak English as a first language.
