NYC bar with Dutch LLB and US LLM?


Can anyone help please? I'm unclear whether I will be allowed to take the NYC bar with having a Dutch LLB, and a USA LLM.
In the Netherlands I am not allowed to practice law and that is only possible after having done a LLM in the Netherlands on top of the LLB in the Netherlands.
Does anyone know about this? It may take months for the committee to review my application and otherwise I may need to reconsider doing the LLM in the USA.
Thanks a lot!

Unfortunately it's mostly a waiting game at this point. They need to examine your background and see if you've taken the proper classes, and what else you may need to correct any gaps.

It's only the committee that can tell you this info, and I doubt anybody on this message board can give you an answer one way or the other.

Thank you..yes it would've been much more straightforward had one already been admitted to practice law in the home country..just wonder whether anyone else has had this case? Everyone I've seen was already eligible to practice law in the home country
