A bit more on soft skills: Some of the most common soft skills sought by employers include team work, customer service and the ability to stay organized (to name a few). These are skills you gain in many different ways, such as through other jobs (ones not related to the field you might pursue), schoolwork or even volunteering. So always keep your soft skills in mind when deciding on whether or not to pursue a career in a field that you don't have knowledge of or experience with.
Of course, you certainly can't become a lawyer without a law degree, but there are many employers who are willing to offer internships or part-time work while you earn necessary degrees or certifications. Employers understand that they can't just hire just for hard skills anymore, as having other soft skills are just as important, and often more difficult, to find in job candidates. Focus on all that you can bring to an organization to help it be successful, and the employer may be more open to your lack of specific knowledge or experience.
