If you’re thinking about the law as a career, the Ohio State Bar Association would like to help. We’ve gathered information from a variety of sources, including the Supreme Court of Ohio, which is responsible for licensing attorneys in Ohio, and the OSBA. These materials are designed to give you more information about how to explore your interest in a legal career.
If you think you might be interested in becoming a lawyer, you should also speak with your high school and college advisors, talk with people you know in the legal profession, or contact your local bar association. While law school is a big commitment, both in terms of time and dollars, it can lead to a very rewarding career. Gathering information, including employment prospects and realistic income expectations, is a wise first step.
To familiarize yourself with the legal profession and stay current on issues in the law and legal education, bookmark the OSBA website and join our social media outlets.
