Bar Exam before LLM?


r_s

Hi all,

I'm currently clerking and have applied to UF's tax llm program. Is anybody planning to take the bar exam for the state where you're going for an LLM (NY, DC, FL, etc.) prior to starting the program? Has anyone already done this? I'm wondering if anyone has found that being already admitted to the bar in the state is an advantage in the job search for LLM grads. Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks.

Can one give the bar exam on the basis of a foreign qualification? Doesn't one have to do a law program in US in order to give the bar exam?

I'm taking this summer NY/NJ, prior to beginning NYU's tax llm in the fall. Obviously I can't comment on whether it necessarily will be useful. However, the 2 main reasons I am doing so are: 1) any bar will be sufficient to practice in a federal government position, and 2) I'd like to start the clock towards being able to waive into another state after passing NY. I'm not certain I will remain in NY/NJ for the indefinite future, but NY bar passage provides an easy avenue into a majority of bars.

Can you take NJ without a JD?

I took NY last summer and I'm planning to do an LLM in Virginia or CA next year.

I'm uncertain about the NJ bar without a JD, I will have completed a JD by then.

I'm taking California at the end of July before starting at UCLA in August. Main reasons are 1.) I have time right now to study and 2.) I want to be ready for the job market when I finish my LLM and 3.) I want to be able to do a re-sit if needed.
