Hanna and Cari

Brandy talks with Hanna and Cari about her educational journey to becoming a licensed attorney.  She discusses the requirements of getting into law school, and she provides detailed advice about studying for and passing the LSAT exam.  The law school format is very different than other continuing education programs.  With the first year curriculum (you're called a 1L), everyone around the country is going to essentially take the same classes.  In the second and third year, you can spend time studying an area of law that you find more interesting.  Brandy decided on a concentration in criminal law.  She discusses taking and passing the bar exam.  She says "work harder than you have ever worked before".  There is also the uniform bar exam which allows you to transfer your bar exam score to another uniform bar exam state, and it makes it easier to transfer your law practice to another state.  To become a licensed attorney, you undergo a rigorous character and fitness process.  You need to prove that you are fit for the practice of law. You also have to take the MPRE exam, which tests your legal ethics.  Sponsored by Mybookcart.com.
