NY Bar with LPC/LLM


kialpca
I am currently completing an LPC course with the LLM attached to it. I’ve previously done the GDL. Do you think that this will allow me to qualify for the NY Bar, seeing as it’s more than just the GDL and LPC combination and I would already have an LLM? Thank you!

It depends on a lot of factors. If you did your first law degree in an English-speaking common law country, you may not even need an LL.M. IF your first law degree is deemed the equivalent of a 3-year JD program from an ABA-accredited school.

Even then it's possible that your degree(s) might not meet certain codified standards, and they may ask you to take additional classes to round out your education.

The deadline to submit the documents for evaluation is November 30, I believe...
