The path to becoming a lawyer is a long but rewarding process. Before going to law school, you must complete an undergraduate degree in any desired field of study. If attending a university full-time is not possible, you also have the option of enrolling in evening-, weekend-, or online-correspondence programs to complete your degree.
After earning your bachelor's, you must take the Law School Admission Test (LSAT) to apply to law school. The LSAT is a standardized assessment that law-school admission committees use to evaluate a candidate’s academic and legal skills. The exam requires intense preparation, and many law-school applicants with busy schedules enroll in a prep course online or find a class or private tutor.
Once you enroll in an American Bar Association-accredited school and complete your legal education, there is one more hurdle to clear before you officially become an attorney: you must study for and pass your state bar exam. Programs such as those administered by BARBRI and Kaplan PMBR offer various options for preparing for it.
