UK CPE+BVC route to NY Bar exams


Th01

hi river - thanks (regardless of intention). i haven't heard back yet, but i amassed a lot of uni and work documentation for the application and applied a little later (beginning of this month) in hopes that the appeal process, should there be one, will be less strenuous.
i should warn you, however, that what might be useful for my application is that a) i'm a U.S. citizen, and b) i worked at a law firm in NY for two years prior to beginning my LL.M.
in any case, i'll let you know the outcome.
best of luck

Hi, I realise this is an extremely old thread but I was wondering if your appeal was successful. I'm in the same situation at the moment.
