Online LLM Degree sufficient to sit in the New York state bar?


klaud1ne
I'm a practicing lawyer in my country and I intend to sit in the New York state bar. I did read, however, that foreign-trained lawyers from civil law countries will have to take an LLM in order to be qualified for the state bar. As I still have no intention of leaving my job but do want to pursue an online LLM, will the same satisfy the LLM requirement for the NY bar? N.B. I have an LLB. Please let me know if I'd gotten any information wrong. Thanks
