Good Standing - Bar Exam (mexican applicants)


Hello!

I am a Mexican attorney looking to sit for the California Bar Exam. l am having many difficulties to get the Good Standing letter that issues the SEP, but unluckily the SEP has been closed for COVID for many months and looks like it will remain closed for many more...

Is someone else in this same position? How did you deal with this situation?

Thank you!!

I asked them about  certificate of good standing question, they reply me :"As a foreign attorney, to qualify for the California Bar Examination you will need to register and provide an original certificate of good standing from the professional bar admissions regulation or attorney licensing authority in the jurisdiction you are admitted in.  It must be translated to English and notarized unless already in English.  The original certificate of good standing must be mailed to the Los Angeles office." So , you can send them the notarization of lawyer's license and tell them about your present situation.

Hola, abogado mexicano aquí. Se me ocurrió que quizá el INCAM o la Barra Mexicana si eres miembro, podría otorgarte algún documento que cumpla con esas características y enviarla directo a la Barra de California.

Gracias! Sí también lo pensé, pero aún así no creo que son autoridad competente para expedirla ni tendrían conocimiento de alguna sanción por eso dudo que la quieran extender, pero lo intentaré! En verdad no creo ser la única que está en ésta situación! He conseguido gestores en Ciudad de México y están carísimos y no me aseguran fechas por el cierre de la SEP...

Sí, por fin la obtuve! Aún así no estoy segura de poder alcanzar a poder registrarme... Qué coraje! Tuve que mover cielo mar y tierra para obtenerla. Te envío la respuesta que me dio la Barra de California, envía tu documentación al correo que mencionan. Mucha suerte!!

Dear Applicant,
Unfortunately, we cannot approve your Registration Application with a Certificate of Good Standing from your University. Other applicants have been able to obtain an original Certificate of Good Standing by emailing SEP at dgp.cedulaprofesional@nube.sep.gob.mx .
Sincerely,The Office of Admissions
