Today, in nearly all states, completion of a degree program at an accredited law school is required for admission to practice as a lawyer. See Admission to Practice. It normally takes three years of full time work to receive a law degree. Unlike the case in nearly all other countries of the world this required degree program must follow a basic four year college or university degree. In the United States there are 175 law schools accredited by the American Bar Association. Most states do not accept bar applications from graduates of law schools not on that list. In the first year of law school students generally are required to take broad introductory topics. These may include torts, contracts, criminal law, civil procedure, property, and constitutional law.

    Legal Facts
  • Juvenile defendants were generally treated as serious offenders, as 52% did not receive pretrial release, 63% were convicted of a felony, and 43% of those convicted received a prison sentence in 2000.

  • During 2001, less than half (46%) of defendants charged with a Federal offense were released following the initial court appearance, provided that any court-imposed conditions were satisfied. Three-quarters were released on their own recognizance or an unsecured bond; 18% were eligible for release on bail; and 6% were released under restrictive conditions such as third-party supervision or home detention.




  • Choosing a Lawyer
  • Discuss your case in detail:
    When you visit a lawyer to discuss your case make sure that you have all the facts and figures ready with you. It can be a good idea to note down all the important facets of the case and then elaborate them before the lawyer. The more information you provide to the lawyer, the better he/she can assess the nature of your case. More importantly you can assess how the lawyer will proceed in handling your case after you have supplied all the information. It is always a good idea to ask the lawyer what course of action he/she recommends in your case, and the answer will greatly depend upon how much information you have supplied.

  • Understand the lawyers fee structure:
    The legal fee could be divided into a fixed fee (usually for routine legal work), an hourly fee, a retainer fee (so that the lawyer is always available to handle your case) or a contingency fee (where you pay the lawyer a certain percentage of the money you receive as compensation). Speak to the lawyer in detail regarding the fee structure and what services are included in the fee. If there are any additional charges, these should be clarified beforehand.
