LAS VEGAS, NV / ACCESSWIRE / March 11, 2022 / According to board-certified divorce attorney Jennifer Abrams, the high-growth Las Vegas metropolitan area has an increasing demand for legal services. In a recent article featured in the Augusta Free Press, Jennifer Abrams outlines the current requirements for obtaining a license to practice law in Nevada. As a well-respected attorney in the Clark County Family Courts, Ms. Abrams states that a liberal arts education will help pave the way for navigating the challenges of law school.
"Receiving a broad-based liberal arts education is excellent preparation for the rigors of law school because it teaches critical thinking and research skills. Students should ensure that their undergraduate curriculum includes studies of human nature, history, oral and written communications, economics and business, philosophy, and political science."
While a law school degree is required to practice law in Nevada, individuals will have to first take the LSAT in order to be admitted to law school. The LSAT is a standardized test designed to assess verbal reasoning and reading comprehension. During law school, students may pursue internships at local firms or agencies as a means of exposure to the legal field. Lastly, those hoping to practice in a professional capacity will have to pass the State Bar of Nevada admittance exam.
"Jennifer Abrams encourages potential applicants to the Nevada Bar to observe court proceedings and gain exposure to legal proceedings by working in law firms, or the courts, or volunteering time through organizations such as the Legal Aid Center of Southern Nevada, Southern Nevada Senior Law Program, Volunteer Attorneys for Rural Nevadans, or Washoe Legal Services."
