Should I Be A Lawyer Quiz

There are many different types of lawyers, so the first step is to determine what type of lawyer you want to be. Do you want to be a corporate lawyer? A criminal defense lawyer? A family law attorney? Once you know what area of law you want to practice, research the specific requirements for that field.

For example, if you want to be a corporate lawyer, you'll need an undergraduate degree in business or economics. If you want to be a criminal defense lawyer, you'll need to complete a three-year law program.

Once you know what type of lawyer you want to be and what education is required, consider your personal skills and qualities. Are you good at public speaking? Do you have strong research and writing skills? Are you good at arguing? These are all qualities that will come in handy as a lawyer.

Think about your motivations for becoming a lawyer. Do you want to help people? Do you want to make a difference in the world? Do you want to earn a lot of money? Once you know what motivates you, research different law firms and find one that aligns with your goals.
