You have to have a bachelor in ,pre-law,criminal justice, or political science preferably (mind you they don't really specify) which usually takes about 3-4 yrs after graduating from highscool, then once you have completed that you will need to take the LSAT in order to be admitted into a Law school, once you have taken the LSAT you apply to your law school of choice wich then takes 3-4 yrs to complete depending on the pace which you decide to go on. Once you have complete it that then you have to take the BAR Exam from whichever the state it is that you are going to be practicing in, (this exam is very hard) then you you can become a private lawyer, or work for a company, or for the government (They tend to make the less amount of money), it's a really broad profession so that means you will have a lot of options, and depending on which one you choose thats the kind of money you will be making, the average starting salary will range from $60,000 and up per year. Good luck and remember, its a lot of hardwork but its worth it, I am in my 3rd year majoring in criminal justice so I still have a lot to go. :)

As a current law student:
   
Typically, 4 yrs of college (any major).
However upon graduation, you are not guaranteed a seat into law school. You must take the LSAT. The higher the score, the more options you have, but if your score is really low, then you run the chance of not getting accepted anywhere.

If accepted: 3 yrs of Law.
However, there are a couple of law schools that have part-time programs, but obviously that will take an additional 1-2 yrs if you go the (part-time) route.
