Lawyer, General


In addition to your undergraduate studies and the acquisition of your bachelor's degree, you’re looking at three years of law school, after the completion of which you'll have to pass the bar exam to get licensed to practice law in your state. And no, you can't just pass by it in your car. You'll actually have to park, come inside, and answer all of the questions. And you'd better get most of them right, or you'll try, try again until you do.
