I think that if you've completed an LLM, the process would typically be to secure the OPT visa, which is a temporary visa allowing you to work in the US after finishing your studies.

Then, once you've landed a job, you could apply for a more permanent visa, such as the H1B.

Taking a bar exam shouldn't have any affect on this process.

Keep in mind that your OPT clock starts running when you graduate, not after the bar, so by the time you get your bar results, you will not have much time left.
