NY Bar exam - Accreditation - French applicants


Capella

Hello all,

In order to apply to the NY bar exam, the Board requires all foreign-educated persons to send an accreditation.

The official website say they must "submit a written statement from the competent accrediting agency of your foreign government that the law school or schools you attended were recognized by them as qualified and approved throughout your period of study".

I wonder if this is a constant requirement no matter what the law school is. Where are we supposed to get this accreditation in France?

Any help would be highly appreciated, in particular from a French applicant ;)

I’m not familiar with French schools. UK, Canadian and Australian law schools have local regulators like the law societies send letters confirming that the degrees from whatever university are valid for entry to the profession. You might want to contact your American law school about this, or get in contact with some recent french LLMs from your American law school about what they did.
