BitLife How to Be A Lawyer – What to Study?

Our Bitlife How to Become a Lawyer Guide will walk you through all you need to know to go down the path to becoming a defender of the law! You will need some smarts to accomplish this, but once you complete all of your schooling, you will have access to one of the more lucrative careers in the game.

Some careers in BitLife can be a bit tricky to obtain, but no worries because we have some tricks on how to set yourself up for success! This isn't always foolproof, you might need to reset your game a few times because you might get unlucky and the fates will determine you were meant for a different career path.

Setting Up to be a Lawyer

Being intelligent is going to be the most important factor to becoming a lawyer. So, run through creating your character a few times until you start with at least 70% smarts (higher is better). To influence this as your character gets older, make sure to go to the School area and hit "Study Harder" to up your smarts. Higher tier career people need to be pretty smart, and in Bitlife that is no different! Once you turn 12 you will be able to start going to the Library, so make sure to do that every year you progress in from now on. You might as well also Meditate, head to the movies, and do stuff with your parents to maintain your relationship with them. If you are smart enough, you'll end up getting a scholarship, but you might also have to ask your parents for money for college.

During this process, it's important to keep yourself healthy and disease free. So, once the gym is available, make sure to head there and get your workout on. If it's not free, you can ask your parents for money. This is why it's important to increase your relationship with them! Once you are 12 or 13 years old you can get a Freelance Gig or a Part-Time Job to make some money on the side. Due to you being smart, you should unlock the "Tutor Freelance Gig" which pays quite well. You might also want to join up one of the stereotypical "smart person" extracurricular activities. These would be the Chess Club, Student Council, or Yearbook Club. It isn't clear that these make a difference, but there's no real harm in adding them as long as you keep your stress down. It's possible that these help get you a scholarship to college, which will get you out of paying student loans!

How to Become a Lawyer

Much like the previous careers, you are going to need to be smart. So, go ahead with all of the basics that are mentioned in the general portion of this guide and get to your high school graduation. You will then need to head to University where you need to take English or Political Science as your major. Go through University the same way you went through your past schooling by heading to the library and working hard in school. Once you graduate from University, you will then head onto high learning and Law School! Do your time the same way you've been doing all your other schooling and graduate.

Now that you've graduated from all that schooling, you will need to find a job at a Law Firm. Obviously try to find the highest paying one, if your smarts are high you should have no problem. You now have to work hard for THIRTY years to become a judge. Once you've done your thirty years, making sure to work hard and keep your smarts up you will want to look for a new job. That job is called a "Magistrate" in the job listings. Apply for that, and if you've kept your smarts up and did a good job as a Lawyer then you'll become a judge!
