Significant Points

About 26 percent of lawyers are self-employed, either as partners in law firms or in solo practices.
Formal requirements to become a lawyer usually include a 4-year college degree, 3 years of law school, and passing a written bar examination; however, some requirements may vary by State.
Competition for admission to most law schools is intense.
Competition for job openings should be keen because of the large number of students graduating from law school each year.

  19. In swedish courtrooms, you don't object at all. You wait until someone asks you if somethings is wrong and then you reply "maybe a little wrong...". If I wanted to become a lawyer I should move :)

  23. I've always said I could never be self-employed. For that reason alone, being a lawyer was potentially never gonna be the career for me.

  33. Jobs are getting tougher to secure in this field, which leads me to wonder just how many lawyers we really need in this country and if it isn't time for smart, well educated folks that can write and argue to do something else.
