    One of two ways. 

    First, get in to Northwestern University School of Law in Chicago and do an accelerated J.D. program.  See here:

    Second, go to UK and get an L.L.B degree if you already have a BA or BS in the United States or the UK.   I am not sure that every school does one, but I do have a friend who studied in the US and got a law degree in two years at Oxford.  (Remember that normally in the UK, university is 3 years AND you can study law as an undergrad, which is why they let you do a second bachelor's degree in two).

    The best companies that I found that help with becoming a lawyer is The Law Office Study Program (LOSP) is a program that allows you to learn the trade and prepare for the bar exam. The LOSP is a program in which you work directly under a practicing attorney to learn the trade.

    Do you mean, "How do I become a lawyer in 2 years rather than 3?" or do you mean, "I have a 2-year associates degree and I want to now become a lawyer...?"

    In the US, you must have an undergraduate degree, not an associates degree, to apply to and be accepted by a law school.

    If you already have a bachelors and want to finish law school in two years, it is possible but highly unusual and not recommended.  But, you could probably do a years worth of law school during the 2 summers you would normally spend clerking, if you can find a school that offers this.
