DC Bar


Hi, was someone with a LLM degree able to sit or waive its score for the DC bar? If so, what were the requirements to do so?

Sounds like DC has stricter requirements than the New York bar exam:

Georgetown specifically does not recommend using the LLM as a path to sit the DC bar exam.

Specifically:

The D.C. bar requirements can not be completed as part of a specialized LL.M. program, and if done as part of a general LL.M., severely limit an LL.M. student's ability to focus on his or her areas of interest.
