A first year lawyer, on average, recieves $53,000 per year. As time goes by, the pay-rate goes up. Other factors, such as the place you live in, what type of lawyer you are and what you study, affect his or her earnings. Pay can be as high as $300,000, but it can also be as low as $50,000.
To become a lawyer, a certain type and amount of education is required. For the first part, you must earn a high school diploma. You may then strive to earn your bachelors degree. Now, you have to pass a law school test. Then, you must enter a law school. From there, you have to earn your Juris Doctor degree through that law school. Finally, pass the bar examination and proceed to become a lawyer.
Almost all the time, new lawyers or in training lawyers must follow a experienced lawyer and watch what they do. They have to learn through that experienced lawyer as they show them what to do and how to do it. This is usually all the training there is and in rare cases there are extra steps.
There are no specifically stated qualifications other than the required education listed in slide 5.
Lawyers work in law firms and tend to be in court rooms and law libraries too. They can also have the flexibility to work at home. They may also go to places where their clients are at.
This job will most likely be available because if you are able to receive all of that education, your one of the few who have succeeded and will get a lawyer job with ease because you have all the requirements that most people can't get.
The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics believe that between the years 2014 - 2024, job opportunities for lawyers will increase by 6% because of the amount of students attending law schools and all the students planning to attend law school.
