What would you like to do?
What classes do you need to take in high school to be a family law lawyer?
It's not necessary to take any specific classes in highschool, but if you have a mock-jury or youth legislation, or a civic society in your high school, try to get involved in that and get some expirence in the law field... it will give you a huge leg up when you get to college. Make sure that you have a good advisor and set realistic expectations. You also might want to volunteer for CASA or another organization like that to make sure that it is the feild that you wan to go into. Many people change their major 3 or 4 times before they get it right.

You should focus on college preparation courses, particularly math and science. If your school offers AP classes, you could skip some of these courses in college if you get a …decent score on the AP exam. It would also be a good idea to start getting some experience in pharmacy or general healthcare by shadowing a pharmacist or doing volunteer work at a healthcare facility. Contact an advisor at the pharmacy school that you are interested in and find out what their program requires.
Answer English, chemistry, biology, maybe physics. High school classes have practically no bearing on your graduate studies. All you need to take in high s…chool are the requisites for admission into a university of your choice, and from there one would have to take courses required for your bachelor's degree, and admission into medical school.
Answer Business law civics and free enterprise. In the United States, there are no high school courses that will help you get into law school. There are actually n…o specific college courses that are required. The only requirement in most law schools is that you have completed a Bachelor's degree of some type.
Law schools don't care about your high school record so as long as you have gone to a good college and performed well as an undergraduate. High school classes are only valuabl…e insofar as they may help prepare you to do well in your undergraduate studies. The same applies with admission testing - the SAT has no effect with only one exception. If you have a history of under-performing on standardized tests (for instance 1000 SAT score but a 3.9 GPA from Johns Hopkins in a tough major), then this will be considered good evidence that you do not test well. As such, law schools may place slightly less emphasis on a low LSAT score. Basically, focus on college for now and worry less about law school. In the long run, no one will care about your high school record (again so as long as you attend a good college).
How many years of college do you have to go through and what classes should you take in high school to be a criminal defense lawyer?
Normally a total of seven years of college- four for a BA or BS plus three years in law school. There aren't any high school classes that are critical, but Civics, American Hi…story, Sociology and Psychology would all be helpful. A high grade point average in high school and college is beneficial. So is belonging to the Debate Society. Also, languages, particularly Latin, are veryhelpful In some states there are high school classes such as constitutional law or street law (I know Washington, DC and Pennsylvania do) which may not help you get in a college/ law school but would definitely give you a boost knowledge wise.
Answer They each have their own requirements, but generally it is a full course load all throughout high school including: 4 years of english, 3-4 years of math, 2-3 ye…ars of a foreign language, 2-3 yers of science (at least 1 must be lab based), 3 years of social sciences, and possibly an art or music class (sometimes any elective will do. In addition to these, it would be nice to have at least 2 years of a foreign language. You should take as many honors and Advanced Placement classes as possible.
In high school you should take the most difficult science and math courses that you can handle. You will need to take biology, chemistry, physics and calculus in undergraduate… college, so you should have some background in those courses in high school.
High School Classes are irrelevant for acceptance into law school; however, you will best serve yourself by planning ahead and taking classes that will assist you in planning …for a major in College. Practically all ABA accredited law schools require a Bachelors Degree from an accredited university for admission. There is no requirement on the major you choose, while in your undergraduate program.
well you need English maths and science because you have to take them, and then you take history, geography, and some other subjects Also it would be rather wise if you took …french all throughout highschool, also (if possible) a law course
Good clases are: * English * Public Speaking * Civics/Social Studies * Political science * Sociology * Speech (not remedial -- debate/public speaking) Note… that you can legally take the bar exam in the state you wish to practice in without having attended law school at all. This course of action is legal, but VERY rarely works. No particular classes are required, BUT you also need to graduate from college before you can go to law school, so you should take whatever courses your school has to give you the best chance of going to college and being successful there. Also, contrary to some beliefs, I strongly recommend that you major in English in college. The English language is the lawyers tool of the trade. You will rarely use other majors like Political Science, etc. but you will use the English language every day, no matter what specialty of law you choose.
You need a high school diploma to become a carpenter. If you would like to one day get a contractor's license, you will need education in math (i.e. measure twice, cut onc…e), science, woodworking and accounting and economics. Beyond that, you will need to apprentice for several years before becoming a journeyman. The Carpenters Union and/or junior colleges can also help you find your way.
You should focus on taking the most challenging science and math courses that you can handle - physical science, biology, chemistry, physics, calculus, statistics. All of thes…e courses will be repeated with more in-depth material in undergraduate college (in the United States), so you need a strong foundation. Take as many science courses as you can, preferably the advanced or college-prep courses if you can. Take as high-level of mathematics as you can - if you can get all the way through Calculus I in high school, your undergraduate pre-requisites will be much easier. Other than this, take classes you enjoy - vet school doesn't work out for the majority of people who go to college to become a veterinarian. Explore other paths as well, and take some classes you enjoy if you can.
Do as well as possible in English. Also do plenty of reading. You don't have to have classes to write -- just sit down and get started! You do need to learn proper English, a…nd reading is a good way to do that.
Answer You need to take chemistry, biology,and get some exposer to physics and calculus level math
Pretty much all of them, since you'll also need a four-year bachelors degree, and a three-year law degree before you can take the bar exam just to get a state license to pract…ice law...you might be able to skip gym a few times, but you'll want the rest of them. Courses and activities in high school that you will find helpful toward a career in law would include government, history, political science, English, and Latin (or other romance language). It will also be helpful to be involved in student government, debate club, and journalism club.
im actually a senior an im taking some classes to become an obgyn! Anatomy and philsology is good to take so you can have a good backround before you go to college because you… will have to take anatomy classes. AP Biology is also good and you can get college credit sometimes!
While it is not really required, it is strongly recommended that you take honors and AP courses throughout high school so that you are prepared for college studies and s…o that the selection committee can see that you are a dedicated student.
