You don't need a law degree to become a lobbyist, but that has not stopped a number of lawyers from entering the lobbyist playing field. And though a law degree is an added advantage, it's hands-on experience and who you know that count.

Law School Can Help You Become A Lobbyist

Andrew M. Rosenberg always knew he wanted to be a lobbyist. Prior to entering law school, he worked on Capitol Hill and said he had "every intention of becoming a public policy-focused lawyer."

Rosenberg graduated from the University of Virginia School of Law and joined Patton Boggs, LLP, in 1997, where he continues to focus his practice in public policy, with emphasis on healthcare, technology, appropriations, Native American law, and election law. In March 2002, Influence added Rosenberg to its list of Washington's top lobbyists under 35 years of age.

"Law school teaches you the meaning of words.

Success Stories

LawCrossing is fantastic! When I am looking for a job, it is the first place I come to. The service is very good and I enjoyed the emails. LawCrossing has more jobs and it is more tailored. Other sites gave a lot of irrelevant results. Your site may have a great algorithm, but it felt like an actual person choosing jobs they felt would be good based on my search. I will always recommend this site!
