    Lawyer..
    In Less Than Three Weeks I Will Be A Sophomore In High School & Next Year I Start Applying For Colleges. For The Longest Time Even When I Was Young I Always Said I Wanted To Become A Criminal Lawyer, But I was wondering if I do become a lawyer, are there any dangers such as people trying to kill me?

    There are dangers with people trying to kill you in any profession. But getting involved in criminal law does give you a slightly increased risk, since you will be more involved with criminal elements. But its not a level of risk that should discourage you.

    Yes, there can be an increased chance of danger. But there are dangers in all occupations of some sort.

    But at this age, many things can change. Now you need to graduate high school, get into college, and graduate college, before you can even go into law school.

    I Don't Have To Graduate College Before I Can Get Into Law School, I Can Get Accepted Into A College & Major In The Law Field.. And I Can Also Get Scholarships To Attend Law School.

    Depends on where you are. In the US, you can be accepted for Law School before you graduate, college, but you will have to graduate before you can start Law School.

    A good criminal lawyer has a vast range of knowledge in addition to the law, general smarts, quick analysis, and ease of speaking without having to prepare.
    As a criminal lawyer, you will either be prosecuting or defending, although you may change from one type to the other, but only by changing jobs.
    It's the prosecutors who are in more danger than the defenders, although they can be too on occasion. I think judges actually are in more danger than lawyers, but I could be wrong.

    May I suggest that you stop putting caps at the beginning of every word? It won't help with your teachers.

    Yes, I was speaking from US.

    If you are in China for example, you go into Law School from high school
