How do I become a lawyer?

Question Details: I'm in junior high and I don't know how to start or get involved in a law career. I want to become a lawyer since it seems like something I would like to do. However, I don't know how. Can someone tell me what I should do at and after high school to succeed in a law career? From my understanding I have to do pre-law at a university in order to enter a law school but that's all I know. If someone could tell me there experience as a lawyer and how to become one I'd appreciate it.
