The field of law can be a difficult one to master. It can seem that only those that go through law school will ultimately be able to argue a case in front of a judge one day. However, due to the foresight of California law, the Law Office Study Program may allow you the opportunity to prove yourself and further your career.
You can enter the program even if you are not a college graduate. However, you may have some college experience but one that is not specific to law. Some applicants attended law school but, due to difficult circumstances or timing had to leave. Regardless of the reason, if you are a determined, tenacious individual with a passion for helping others you too can set yourself up to take the state bar.
Of course, getting yourself there is not easy. You can read more about the process of becoming an attorney through this process here. Ultimately, there are several questions that you must answer before you embark on such a path. You must be willing to take at least four years of your life ready to study. You must find a sponsor for the program. You must prepare for the First-Year Law Students’ Examination or baby bar exam. You must study for the California bar exam, which statistics show is one of the most difficult in the country. There is a high chance that you will not even pass it the first try!
The question comes down to yourself. Are you a committed individual who would like to work with a lawyer or judge willing to show you the ropes and prepare you for a field where you can fight criminals or negligently and defend those who cannot defend themselves? Do you want to avoid expensive law school that could run you into six-figure debt? Do you want a chance to practice law in the state of California?
