Certification of a Personal Injury Lawyer

An individual who wants to become a personal injury lawyer will have to attend law school and pass their state’s bar exam. Most states require 4 years of college attendance or a college degree for someone to be permitted to even take the bar. If you attend a law school full-time, that means you will be in school for 7 years just so you are allowed to take the bar. As you have heard before, it is a tough exam and the passing rate is very low. Once you take the exam and hopefully pass, you will be licensed. If your goal is to practice in the field of accidents and help people legally, you will need lots of practice in this area. Start working at a law firm that specializes in this area. Your education does not end there. Once you are licensed, you will be required to keep up to date with the latest laws in this field.
