Thank you very much for the flowchart, sure cleared a lot of things up.  :) And that emphasis on research means researching for the right grad school and what area of law you want to go in?
So at the moment, I can look at 4 years of undergrad, 3 years of grad, and no schooling for terminal specialty training, other than the courses to stay current? But this way.. it looks like I can have a serious job only after receiving my LLB? Or could you start working after receiving a JD degree?

Aw no, does this mean that that as an undergrad, I should look to fill my transcript with as many community service, leadership roles, and other various activities? As a high school students, it's already tiring, I can't see going through it again for four years. Granted, the stuff I did I was interested in and genuinely wanted to do, but being in 7 clubs, 3 of which are honor societies, and doing a lot of other crap is very tiring. Are co-curricular activities a big deal for grad school admission? Or is it like what I've been hearing, just gpa and LSAT?

Well, perhaps not totally clueless, but just about. I've always been interested in law, and planned to go to law school after undergrad. However, with no career advisor and a plethora of information online, I'm quite confused about the requirements for becoming a lawyer. Do I take the JD program first, then a SJD or LLM? Or could I directly go to LLM? And I'm assuming that I need a SJD or LLM degree in order to be lawyer, correct? Is it standard education time to have four years undergrad, three years grad? Or do lawyers usually receive more? Please help clear the fog. Thanks.
