Answer

In the US, you first need to graduate high school, then get a bachelor's degree from a reputable university. Then, you take the LSAT (admissions test for law school) and begin applying to law schools. If you are accepted to one, you will spend 3 years there. Once you've completed law school, you may petition a state's bar for a law license in that state. If the bar finds you fit (basically, you pass a background check), you will be allowed to sit for the bar exam. If you pass the bar exam, you may be sworn in by a judge with the appropriate authority. You may now practice law.

Most prospective law students find that the law school admissions process is very competitive, so it is important to attend a highly ranked university for undergrad, and to earn high grades. While some students attend community college and receive their AA before going on to a university for their BA, this is probably not going to give you the competitive edge that you need to get into a good law school. A local state university is a much better affordable option.
