Criminal Lawyers

Exploring This Job

Join high school law clubs and participate in mock trials. Observe criminal court proceedings at a courthouse in your town. Observe the interaction between the judge, prosecutor, and defense attorney or public defender. If you are unclear about any aspect of the proceedings, create a list of questions to ask your government teacher or, better yet, a criminal lawyer. Your school counselor or local law associations may be able to help arrange an information interview with a criminal lawyer.
