The top medical malpractice lawyers have both medical and law degrees. That would be ideal if you don't mind spending around a decade in college.
At the least, you should take pre-med courses in addition to law school. You need some knowledge about medical practices before you can decide what is medical malpractice.
For a corporate lawyer, get a business degree, then go to law school.

I am answering for my husband who is a semi retired lawyer after practicing for 40 years.
Indiana University for bachelors degree
Indiana University for law degree
Will not give any other personal info.
He was hired in a law firm and 3 months later passed the bar, so was able to practice. 1 year after joining the firm, he was made a partner and stayed there for 20 years, but got fed up with all the back stabbing and stealing clients, he left and opened his own law office as a sole practicitor for the past 20 years.
He has handled bankruptcy, contracts, divorce, child custody, criminal law, social security, personal injury and most anything that walked in the door. He has handled several murder trials and won all. He got out of bankruptcy in 2005 when they changed the law, just like many other lawyers did.
Since he is basically semi retired, he is closing out his cases and only taking social security cases since he prefers them and not a lot of work. When you shut down a law practice, you cant just sell your office, but have to stick around and close them or have the clients find another lawyer to handle. If a client does not pay, you cant get off the case, since the judge will make you stay on to conclusion, even thought they don't pay you.
In some weeks, could find himself in court everyday for one case or another. Some cases maybe only an half hour, whereas in a trial could last for days/weeks.
Negatives is clients not paying you. Or so many lawyer jokes. My husband has a T-shirt that says;
If you think lawyer jokes are so funny, then the next time you need a lawyer, hire a comedian.
He loved to compete against other lawyers, especially from his old law firm and win. No lawyer wants to lose ANY case. The clients if they don't get 100% of what they want, will believe he did not do enough. On criminal, if you save the client from going to jail and get a reduced sentence are not happy since they believe no matter what should walk off free.
The average lawyer in the US must get a 4 year bachelors degree, 3 years of law school and then take the bar exam and pass to practice law.
But I suggest you consider another field of study, since the law field is saturated and many lawyers graduating today will never find work as a lawyer for years.
My Family In-Law Please Help ?
Ok My Boyfriend And I Is Together For Pass Two Yrs Now.
My Family In-Law Is Every Clothes I Meaning Every Clothes, Everybody Is Getting Together Every Holiday, Birthday, Anniversary And Sunday Dinners.
The Three Person How Like Me Is My Mother In-Law, Father In-Law And The Sister In-Law.
Every Body Else When Me To Get Out Of Their Family.
My Boyfriend Has A Big Brother And His Girlfriend And He Is Together For 4 Yrs Now.
She Tried Every To Get Me Out Go This Family, I Mean Every Thing One Day She Tell Everybody Her Daughters Was Sleep And The Pillow Cover Her Face In She Said It Your Me How Was Tried To Do Something To The Baby.
I Was So Bad.
She Also Said I’M Only In This Family For The Money. (My Mother In-Law Own 2 Nursing Home And I Work For One, Was Their When She Starts The Business, I Also Was Their When My Boyfriend Start His Business Of Construction.)
Now My Mother’S In-Law When To Have A Meeting Whit Everyone To Solve The Problem She Toll Me To Tell Her Our I Feel About Her Doing That. What I Need I Said To Her Don’T Know Will Be Every Nasty. Help
I learned this one the hard way! You speaking up about it or your mother in law will DO NO GOOD! If you are your boyfriend's choice HE is the one that needs to make it known. There are members of my husbands family who do not like me either, but he had to stand and say "this is my wife, she is my choice. I am the one that lives with her, I am the one that will be raising children with her" No matter how many times I would have said it before he did that it would have been pointless. Your boyfriend really is the one needs to stand and take action to see it stops. If he's prepared to do that great! If not this meeting will be nothign but arguing and name calling from the sounds of no matter what you or your mother in law say. Personally, now that my husband has done this, those that did not like me now at least know they've GOT to tolerate me and accept his choice. The best you can do is be patient and tell HIM how you feel. Be nice and be kind to the rest if you must spend time with them. It will only make your boyfriend more sure that you are not the one causing any problems. I can also say from experience that my marriage has become FAR richer by allowing my husband the time he needed to be able to say things like this to people he loves dearly. Your boyfriend may be torn just the same as my husband was, but the time will come where it will have to be form him or it won't stop. NO MATTER WHAT you say or do about it!
A Global/International Lawyer?
As A Career, I Would Definitively Like To Pursue Law And Be A Lawyer, But I Also Want To Be Able To Move To Different Cities In North America And Europe And Live There For A Few Years.
Is This Possible? To Be An &Quot;International&Quot; Lawyer? Would That Comprimise My Career?
It is my opinion that you cannot be a lawyer in several countries unless you are prepared to retrain depending on which country you are going to move to as law differs everywhere.
Even a plumber from the UK to Canada has to retrain.
It is known that lawyers and doctors from Europe have difficulties in their chosen profession when moving to the states for example. They sometimes end up leaving their profession entirely as their credentials are not recognized abroad.
Does Anyone Know Any Good Immigration Lawyers ?
I Am A Us Born Citizen And Recently Got Married In The Uae. I Am Looking For A Good Immigration Lawyer That Can Help My Husband Migrate Here. I Could Have Filed The Paper Work Myself, But My Case Is A Little Confusing. So I Need The Help Of A Lawyer To Represent Us.
Have Any Of You Had Any Good Experiences With Any Immigration Lawyers? Any To Recommend? I Am In Los Angeles.
Thank You! :)
Immigration is not a legal, but an administrative process. You don't need a lawyer for this, but you will need a pen to fill out some forms. The supporting documents you would have to get yourself anyway, and I doubt you want to pay an attorney $2K or more for having his office helper filling out some simple forms for you.
It's really very simple.
As a US citizen, you can petition the US government for your husband's immigration. You do that from anywhere in the world by filing an I-130 petition with the USCIS. It costs $420 and takes about 5 months to be processed.
Thereafter the petition goes to the National Visa Center (NVC) in New Hampshire and they will contact you for the mandatory Affidavit of Support.
Since the US government needs to make sure that no foreigner becomes a public charge, every intending immigrant needs a sponsor. The form for this is I-864 and you'll need to make at least $18,912 after taxes, assuming you have no dependents, such as children, to qualify.
What they want to see is your latest US income tax return. As you know, Uncle Sam taxes worldwide income, so I hope you have filed your US taxes every year since you started making money. If your income is not sufficient, you will need either a co-sponsor, or you can make up for it with assets at the rate of 1:3.
After that's been taken care of, the entire package goes to the US consulate in Abu Dhabi, and they will ask for paperwork, a medical, police reports, and schedule an interview. If that goes well, he'll receive CR-1 visa (married less than 2 years) or an IR-1 visa (married 2 years or longer) and has thereafter up to 6 months to "activate" it. You cannot move back to the US after him, so you'll need to move earlier or at the same time, as the whole idea behind this immigration thingi is family reunification.

Do I Need A Lawyer To Start A Small Business Or Can I Pay Legal Forms Online And Do It Myself?
Please, Only People With Experience. I Don'T Need Information, I Have Plenty.
I think you SHOULD do it yourself as long as it is a "simple" business. You will learn a lot in the process and it gives you a great feeling of accomplishment having done what most people will NEVER have the courage to do. All you need is a business license (about $100 from your county usually), and a company bank acount (after you get your business license) after that, success is completely in your hands. (assuming you don't need licenses, permits, or are affected by other regulations. The forms you need are always available from your state and county websites so you should be able to have your new business up and running in no time very easily. GOOD LUCK
