What is the Typical Timeline for Becoming an Attorney?
Many people dream of being a lawyer. The lure of being the heroic Darrow against the tyrannical Bryan is tough to resist. There is much more involved in becoming a lawyer than many people suppose, however. The timeline for becoming an attorney begins in your freshman year of college. Most law schools in the United States require prospective students to have completed a bachelor's degree. The degree does not necessarily have to be in criminal justice or other such legal field. The timeline for becoming an attorney after graduation is normally three years, after which the university will award you with a Juris Doctor. During that three years, you will study cases, write briefs, participate in mock trials, and develop the advanced critical thinking skills necessary for a successful career as a lawyer. Before applying to law school, be sure to consult with your faculty advisor and the bar association of the state where you plan to attend law school. They can both help you with the application process and sorting out any legal problems you might have had up until the date you apply.
You might be wondering how long is a typical timeline for an equity crowdfunding campaign. Perhaps more importantly, at this stage we build a community of investors, warming them up and getting them ready to invest early, so we can show momentum in the campaign. We discussed all of this in more detail in the article 7 steps to prepare your equity crowdfunding campaign. The pre-campaign is the most important phase of the campaign! If they have a strong community and a few lead investors, it could take as little as two months.
