Understanding the significance of how, and why laws were created. The Constitution and how laws apply or do not apply today. Witnessing the Supreme Court in action.

    1. I would suggest you get a basic business admin. degree first, then take courses pertaining to a subject of law you maybe interested in. Then go and get either a law degree or a masters in business.

    2. I would suggest you submit for an internship after you get your undergraduate degree and during your masters with either county, state or federal courts.

    3. Work under a district attorney, master of the court or if you are really smart and lucky for a federal judge.
