“Law school does not necessarily teach you how to practice law, it teaches you how to learn to do so," said Attorney, Don Prachtauser.
Milwaukee, WI (PRWEB) September 23, 2016
Associate salaries are on the rise within law firms throughout the country, and law is becoming an increasingly desirable profession of interest among high school and undergraduate students. Making an informed decision about choosing the best career path can be an intimidating feat for any young person. Given the length of study required, it is particularily important for students condisering law as a profession to closely weigh the pros and cons of attending law school and becoming a lawyer. With prospective law students often seeking the advice of experienced professionals, Milwaukee-based Murphy & Prachtauser, S.C. has created a comprehensive online guide for prospective law students with topics that include:
- Understanding undergrad degree options
- LSAT information and preparation tips
- How to choose the best law school for you
- Top attorney fields and trends in the legal industry
- Top regional law schools you should consider
- Understanding the Bar Exam and how to prepare for it
- Advice from practicing attorneys
A 2016 survey performed by the American Bar Association reports only a slight increase in the population of lawyers by state, although a rise in hiring offers more opportunities for national law school graduates. Most high school and undergraduate students view becoming a lawyer as a major investment of time and money, which is why it is imperative for individuals to do their research, have a good understanding of the options available and take the appropriate steps needed to be successful.
“The best advice I can give a high school or undergraduate student interested in law is to interview professionals or get a summer job in one of the fields you are interested in,” said Attorney, Don Prachtauser. “Law school does not necessarily teach you how to practice law, it teaches you how to learn to do so.”
