    Answered . In Michigan, you need to graduate from an accredited law school and pass the bar exam to be a lawyer. But your question was about degrees -- you need a bachelors degree in almost any field and from there, you can get into law school.

    without a detailed review by a lawyer can all the issues raised in your question be appropriately addressed...... more
