Brief Description of a Lawyers Job: Lawyers can specialize in a variety of different areas including bankruptcy, international, environmental or corporate law. In addition to lawyers working in specialized fields, a sizable number of lawyers work for the government at every level.
Education Requirements: Most lawyers spend seven years, after high school, in school. The first four is spent getting a bachelor's degree, the last three is spent in law school. The time is only half the battle. Getting into law school can be difficult, and good law schools have highly competitive admission processes. Law schools weigh a combination of your undergraduate GPA and LSAT (Law School Admission Test) scores to determine your ability to be successful in a given program.
Salary: The average salary for all lawyers is about $110,000 per year, but it might take you a while to get there. The average salary for lawyers nine months after graduation is only around $68,000, or $50,000 if you're working for the government. How Computer Science is Used: Electronic legal resources provide powerful research tools such as keyword searching and case cite validation. Many resources also feature options to download or email materials. Researching the law is easy using keyword searches: find cases involving landlords and tenants, personal injury or family law with references to analysis and explanations. This is how lawyers use computer science in their job.
