How To Be Proactive In My Studying For The Lsat, Exactly What Needs To Happen With The Lsat To Actually Get In To Law School... I'M Clueless
I Would Love Some Help
Are you near a law school? If so get a tour, sit down w/admissions counselor about their requisites and see if (in the fall, of course) you can sit in on a first year class.
The ABSOLUTE first thing you MUST do is register (free) at www.lsac.org They have a slew of resources regarding law school, LSAT prep and finding the right school.
As far as being proactive on the LSAT you need to practice... there are tons of books with practice exams and even free online courses.
You can take your LSAT nearly any time really, but take it within a year of applying (your last semester of your undergrad if you plan on going right into law school).
Being an English major - you should be used to all the reading, reading, reading... It's a good major for law school. You may also be able to take some "pre law" electives during your undergrad - those may give you some exposure as to what law school profs want.
Just food for thought: WHY do you want to go to law school? WHAT do you want to do with your law degree- practice? be a legal analyst for a TV/Radio/News outlet? Look for a school that has a program that can concentrate your studies on the area you're interested in.

But It Would Be Much Easier If I Could Take All My Law School Classes On Line.
Instead Of Having To Travel To School Or Sleep In A Nearby Dormitory.
Getting the education does ot make you a lawyer no matter where you go to school.
Each state has a Bar association which administers the license to practice law. Contact your state's group and find out what the requirements for a license are. That will tell you what education is necessary and what examinations are required (the Bar Exam) prior to any license.
THEN find out if the school you want to attend has classes that will be accepted toward that license.

How Many Hours A Week Does A Lawyer Work?
I'M Thinking About Going Into Trust And Estates Law, Which I'Ve Heard Is Not As Stressful, And In An Ideal Situation Would Practice For A Large Firm In D.C. Or N.Y. I Know That Most Lawyers Work Between 40-80 Hours A Week, Leaning More Towards The 80 In Big Firms, But I'M Curious About This Particular Branch. Let Me Know! Thanks.
One firm I worked at allowed part-time, so we had a few people who did (on average) 30-35 hour weeks. A top firm in London where a friend of mine works requires 18 hour days (so 108/wk) from its first year associates. These are the two extremes that I'm familiar with.
That said, if you're going for BigLaw (which I assume is what you meant by "a large firm in DC or NY") you'll be doing 80 hours regardless of your specialty. Billable hours are what counts and what gets you promoted. I suspect the less stressful practice of trusts & estates would be a small firm or an individual practice dealing with non-corporate clients. It's obviously harder to make money like this, but when you're more or less setting your own hours and case load, you can work (and earn) as much or as little as you'd like.
