Normally seven years combined college and law school.

You will need a 4-year bachelors degree in almost any subject,

and an adequate LSAT score for admission to law school, which is

generally 3 years to earn a Juris Doctor (JD). You also must pass

the Bar exam in the state in which you want to practice, in order

to actually work as a lawyer.
