How long does it take altogether to become a criminal defense lawyer?
I want to become one after high school.
My husband got his law degree after 8 years of college. Another year to pass the bar and find a position. To be on the safe side, give it 10 years. Btw, this is why attorneys charge so much, they have all those school loans to pay off.
Like 10 Years:P
You have college, them law school, then pass the bar, then start at the bottom and work your way up.
Most layers, defense and otherwise are criminals. It comes with the law degree!
10 years give or take
