Foreign lawyer in Florida?

Hi
Can a lawyer from Europe get permission to be a lawyer in Florida?, or what is the requirements to get the permission, do I need an American JD or LLM?

Thanks.. Do you know where I can read more about the requirements in Florida?

I'm wondering if I can get permission without the J.D because I've been studying law's 5 years at a Danish university, and in Denmark we have a mix of both common and civil law system

Furthermore I know a Danish lawyer, who was able to work in New York only by taking a LLM
