And as loki has explained and anyone who has read the case can see, that case involved someone petitioning the bar using their own rules, which is far different from making a privileges & immunities claim that a bar requirement is unconstitutional.

Yes; no, as my area of law does not involve court per se, but hearings.

I agree with your assertion that life is not an ivory tower; however, I think that axiom points the other way. The statutes and other rules are presumptively valid and the burden is on you, both the poster and the hypothetical plaintiff. But as a matter of practicality, the same people who are the quasi-judicial or executive branch lawyers who control the state bar are the same or similar to the lawyers in the judiciary, depending on the state and whether you're making a federal constitutional claim. Those lawyers have a strong interest in upholding their rules and generally have the same beliefs as to what is permissible and not.

loki has already covered the actual law better than I could. I think if someone could make that claim in court and win, they would've done so.

I promised myself I wouldn't jump back into this, but I have to ask: citylaw, are you a licensed attorney? I am not trying to resort to ad hominem attacks but your line of reasoning is very curious.

Unless the jurisdiction has a rule, probably not.

Rational basis would be integrity of the bar, control, etc. Easy to answer this. Sorry but if you believe such a case has merit, I've got a bridge to sell you. Tapping out now because this thread has gone off-topic.

I dunno what to tell you, but trying to draw a link there is tenuous at best. Even a casual Google search locates dozens of unsuccessful attempts to challenge bar admission requirements. I'm not sure how the state willingly abridging its own requirements strengthens your case.

In the marriage equality case, there was a split. I see nothing like that here.

Based on a quick reading, the rule at issue in that case explicitly denied the right to out of staters, which is a far cry from restricting the eligible schools. We haven't had any successful cases of people challenging more general bar requirements, so I doubt such a case would go anywhere. Of course, you're welcome to try!

Good luck trying to take a non-CA bar with a CALS JD, or the equivalent. I doubt the case is as strong as you say.

Fortunately, the Federal government only hires ABA grads. So, best of luck to the non accredited educated lawyer practicing in Fed court!
