8. There used to be some states in which you could practice

law without a law degree. I don't know if there are any today. Apprenticing with an attorney and passing the Bar exam was one way to become an attorney in those states.

There are still four such states:

Today, only four states California, Virginia, Vermont, and Washington allow aspiring lawyers to take the bar exam without going to law school. Instead, they are given the option to apprentice with a practicing attorney or judge. (New York, Maine and Wyoming offer an apprenticeship alternative as well, but also require some law school.)
