A: A degree in law is known as a JD degree (Juris Doctor degree). In order to get a JD degree, you need to go to law school. First, you need to complete a bachelors degree, which can be in just about any area of study. Common areas of study are philosophy, political science, economics, history, English. After getting your bachelors, you would start preparing to apply to law school. You would then begin to study for the LSAT (The Law School Admission Test), which is a standardized test administered by the Law School Admission Council for prospective law school candidates. If you're interested now, focus on your grades in order to get into a good college, focus on your grades in college in order to get into a good law school, and make relationships with professors or other professionals so that you can have letters of recommendation ready when you are getting ready to apply to law school. Best of luck!
