Eligibility to the New York Bar exam


Soleneb

Hello everyone !
I am a French LLM student and I am concerned about my eligibility to the New York Bar Exam.
Indeed, I previously did a bachelor in management in a business school (3 years), I then completed a one year university degree in law (common law), and I am now enrolled in a LLM program (international business law).
I have the opportunity to complete the second semester of my LLM in New York next year, and I would then be interested in taking the bar exam there.

Does anyone know someone in a similar situation who took the bar exam?

I hope some of you will be able to help me.

I think you can check the New York bar exam boards website for the requisite requirements. Speaking from my own experience, I have at least 3 years common law education and thus can take it even without the llm. So I would suggest you check the website or just email them about the situation. As far as I know they usually consider the credits taken in your legal studies.

Thank you very much for your answer 1f642 ! I know I can ask the BOLE for an evaluation of foreign credits, but the process can be very long so I wanted to check if anyone had been in the same situation before.
