Law school lasts 3 years, after which you can specialize and decide what type of lawyer you want to be.

The ones that represent people in front of a judge are typically called trial lawyers.

Oftentimes, it takes several years of preparation and training even after law school - at a minimum - to be able to argue cases in front of a judge (depending on where you are located).


This is where you come in. If you're a student, you can start asking career questions that will help you prepare for your future. If you're a professional, you can start giving career advice to students who deeply need your advice.
