Job Search / Does it make sense to take the FL Bar?
« on: February 18, 2010, 07:38:50 PM »
THE SITUATION:  Graduating from a Florida lawschool this semester, not originally from the state, and not too gung- ho about staying long- term.  Been applying for jobs like crazy, but no solid leads. 

While I may not find the job I want, I'm quite sure I can find "a job" in FL.  However, I tend to get bored extremely easily and will most likely want to move w/in 2-3 years.

Neither Florida, nor my home state have reciprocity w/any other state.

There is a group of 33 states all having reciprocity with each other.  NY, IL, GA, MA,PA,AZ, and TX- to name a few- are included. 

QUESTION:  If you were in this situation, would you 'limit' yourself to FL b/c that was the plan all along, OR take a state bar included in the group above and waive into any of the other 32 states (after 5 yrs) if/when you got bored and wanted to move????
