Hi there!

A good idea might be to think about where in law you would like to be? Are you interested in criminal or civil law, or more of the investigation side of things? Are you thinking about law school, becoming a paralegal or law-enforcement? There are actually many careers within the legal field. Some require legal training and others are more "allied professions" like victim-advocates, substance-abuse providers and counselors.

You might want to check out the American Bar Associations (ABA) Pre-Law Webpage. It is:

You can always do internships or volunteer work. It helps get your foot in the door. I also have no experience except for a few classes in college completed. I have not completed a degree yet but I recently got a job at the Illinois Institute for Continuing Legal Education. I am only a Program's Associate right now but I get to start networking and getting involved with other Lawyer's, Law Enforcement, and Criminal Justice majors.

Hi there. The first thing is to know where you are in your education. Are you in high school, college or somewhere else?

You need a 4 year college degree, a bachelor's degree. It doesn't have to be in any particular field. You'll need to take the LSAT. You can find information on that through LSAC.org.

Feel free to contact me if you need any other information.
