In the USA, to become a Lawyer, IF you go to school full-time:
1) Bachelor's degree - four years from a traditional college/university.

6) You still have to take law classes/seminars etc. to obtain CEUs to KEEP your license to practice Law. (You aren't done with school!)
Choosing a career is one of life's most important decisions.
The legal profession is dramatically changing and is in CRISIS!!! Every year, more and more people graduate from law school, but there are FEWER and FEWER jobs. Even the largest and most reputable law firms are experiencing unprecedented cutbacks. I don't expect the situation to improve in the coming years.....
Be aware of what you are proposing on getting yourself into. Please do more research first. Reminder: We are in a World-wide Recession. Consider career paths that have available JOBS.<<<<<
Warning> Jobs in the field of Law are drying up fast!! This is just not a good field to invest time and/or money into. This is a SHRINKING, crumbling, and dying vocational field. Many reasons. We now have computers. So, many people today (mistakenly) think they can do their own legal work, thanks to the Internet. Also, there are a lot of companies out there making very efficient legal software for the field of Law. Today's graduating lawyers tend to be very computer savvy, so they just do the work themselves to save themselves the cost of overhead. Also, the "Public" buys this legal software in order to get legal work done without the cost of an Attorney. Also, we simply already have way too many Legal Professionals - we have an absolute glut!! ("Legal Professionals" includes, but is not limited to: Attorneys/Lawyers, Paralegals, Legal Assistants, Legal Secretaries, Bailiffs, Court Reporters, etc, etc)
Sites like legalzoom.com have taken away work that many small-time attorneys/lawyers would do.
The field of Law has a mystique that actually exceeds reality. The field of Law is an overrated career - mostly by television. There are many myths regarding the field of Law: working as a Lawyer is mentally challenging (Actually, most work as an attorney involves routine paperwork: research, cite checking, drafting documents, and document review. Attorneys need to write down and track every activity they do, all day long [in 6 to 15 minutes increments, depending on the billing system] - a painstaking but necessary task), being an attorney is thrilling, high-powered, and glamorous (remember: television is fiction - the fictional lawyers on TV are ACTORS - the majority of work that an attorney does, does not happen in a courtroom), law students think that because they are good at arguing they will become great attorneys (actually being a great attorney is more in one's ability to mediate between differing sides and bringing them to agreement), as a lawyer I can correct injustices (actually legal decisions are more about reaching compromises than about right vs. wrong), guaranteed financial success (actually when salaries are compared, you also need to account for cost-of living expenses [most large law firms are in large cities - the bigger the city, the more cost-of-living expenses will be], payment of debts accrued while attending law school, and time needed to build a client base. Many large law firms require lawyers to work 60-80 hours per week.).
Cost of law school to be lawyer, approx $150,000+.
Be prepared to take on a LOT of debt.<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<
There are no jobs in this vocational field. My family, coworkers, friends, acqaintances, etc. have been laid off left and right in this vocational field.
Employers (usually law firms) in the field of Law today want employees with degrees from traditional colleges/universities. Those "certificates" you see advertised aren't worth the paper they are printed on - they are generally scams. (I found this out the hard way.) Also, the law school's program needs to be accredited by the American Bar Association - if it isn't, you are just wasting your time/money.
Even if you finish law school, you won't be able to find a job when you are done. Since this vocational field is shrinking, many new attorneys/lawyers are, themselves, having to work "down" as Paralegals, Legal Assistants, Legal Secretaries, Bailiffs, Court Reporters, etc, etc, to simply try to keep some of their bills paid <<this would be your competition. And the competition is fierce!!
Now... the law schools know this, but they won't tell you the truth >that the job market/economy is just SATURATED with way too many Legal Professionals. Instead the schools will feed you a fairytale and will LIE to you. The root of the problem is we have too many law schools. We are in a recession, and the schools are fighting for their own survival - they will tell students anything to get to the students' money. (Which is why they won't tell you the truth about the job market for the field of Law.) And these schools continue to recruit and churn out even more graduates.............Remember: law schools are BUSINESSES - their top concern is making money for themselves.
>>>>>I cannot warn you about this enough!!>>>You especially have to beware of the bogus, inflated law school salary/job stats given out by law schools!!!*****<<<<<
If you don't believe me, then just do a SEARCH here on Yahoo Answers to see what other posters are saying about the current status of the field of Law. Call some local law firms - ask to speak to the Manager of Human Resources - ask them if they are hiring; ask them what they think about job availability in the field of Law..................
In the book "So You Want to be a Lawyer?" by Marianne Calabrese and Susanne Calabrese (ISBN 0-88391-136-1): "The United States has more lawyers than any other country in the world. About 38,000 students graduate >each year< from the 200+ law schools in the United States. The competition is very keen for jobs and clients." - Even Associate Justice Antonin Scalia (who served on the U.s. Supreme Court for more than 20 years) says there are too many lawyers. (9/14/2008)

If you want a job when you are done with your studies, consider and look into the fields of: >>>Healthcare, Information Technology, Law ENFORCEMENT, environmentalism, emergency planning, accounting, education, entertainment, utilities, home-car-commercial-industrial repairs, vice industries, clergy, and/or debt collection! I spoke to a career counselor from Jobs and Family Services, and HE told me that these areas are where the jobs are, and future job opportunities/availability! and scholarships!

Lawyers In Dallas That Offer Free Consultation ?
Yes but it depends on what the topic is. If you want to sue someone for personal injuries or workers compensation, the attorneys take those cases are contingencies so any lawyer will talk to you for free. On other matters, some lawyers in divorce will do it but most won't because people will go to 100 lawyer who all give them advice and then the person gets 1,000 hours of free time w/ no intention of hiring anyone. If it's a small issue and you are not able to afford an attorney call your local legal aid office. They have lists of attorneys who agree to take 1-2 cases each for free every year and almost all lawyers agree to do that assuming its for someone who is unable to afford a lawyer or it's a domestic violence matter.
Do I Have To Get An Attorney To Write Up A Will Or Can I Do It Myself?
I Want To Write Up A Will In Case Something Should Ever Happen To Me So I Can Delegate Who Gets/Does What, Especially Who Will Take Care Of My Son (I'M A Single Mom).
Do I Have To Get An Attorney For It Or Can I Write It Up And Have It Notorized?
You can, but shouldn't. What I mean is, you should not write a will. Instead, create a "living trust". The greatest benefactor's in a will, are attorneys, probate court, and the State. With a properly prepared trust, you eliminate the first two. A trust will make provisions for your son, and no one can contest it. (like an absent father that might try to get to your sons inheritance, which would be possible with only a will) Do some research, a trust is pretty easy to set up once you understand how they work, and there are D.I.Y. kits.
What Should I Major In To Become A Civil Rights Lawyer?
Other Than Pre-Law.
Usually I don't recommend political science for prospective law students as it's usually not the best choice, but as a background for civil rights law it's as good an option as any. Other good choices would be history or Af-Am studies (or other groups who have participated in various civil rights movements), along with other choices that are almost always good bets for law school like economics, math, and the hard sciences. But you can major in pretty much anything and be admitted to law school.
Please do your research about law school and post-grad job opportunities before you pick a major solely for the purpose of attending law school. There are very, very few "civil rights lawyer" positions out there, and generally they go to top litigators from top firms, who graduated at the top of their respective classes from top schools to get jobs at those firms. You should major in something you enjoy and if you do choose to attend law school, go into the whole process with your eyes wide open.
