Private Equity Lawyers

Education and Training Requirements

High School

If you’re interested in becoming a private equity attorney, you should take as many business, finance, accounting, economics, and advanced mathematics classes as possible. Since many PE firms conduct business internationally, learning a foreign language will be extremely helpful. Other recommended classes include government, computer science, history, psychology, and social studies. Finally, English and speech courses, as well as participation in your school’s debate club, are especially important because lawyers need strong communication skills.
