Speaking of law school, how long does it take?

In order to gain admittance to law school, a student must have obtained at least a bachelor’s degree from an accredited college or university.  In most cases, a bachelor’s degree can be obtained in four years.  A typical law school degree, or juris doctorate, can be obtained in three years.  This means that in most cases, at least 7 years of higher education is needed in order to complete law school.
