In order to become a lawyer that can file lawsuits in Arkansas Courts you need to be given a license by the Arkansas Supreme Court. In order to get a license it is typical that a person earns a degree from college and then attends three years of further education at a law school. After a total of seven years of education you are required to take the Bar Exam. This exam is given twice a year in Arkansas. “It was three days long when I took it,” says Keith. This test is intended to determine whether one is qualified to practice law in a given jurisdiction and is administered by agencies of each state. Upon passing that test, which covers several different areas of the law, you are given a license assuming that your background is free of any crimes or other ethical behaviors.
