A limited license is granted to an attorney from one state who gets a job as an in-house counsel in a different state.  A patent bar exam applicant must have a STEM degree.

Correct

Corporate attorney license available in some states requires you are already an attorney - end of story.

So where is your JD from again?  If you would tell us, I can can tell you where you can be admitted.

I guess all those Europeans with national IDs must have the wrong idea.

Yes immigration consultants, California requires them to have a sort of registration and bonding.

No JD required for that - it is essentially filling out forms.

If you wait 5 years, Maryland will let you take the bar without a waiver.  DC will let you motion in after 5 years as well.  But somehow I think they have non ABA schools that are not DL in mind with that waiver. But no harm trying once you pass the bar.

One call also perform lawyer like functions as a Social Security Advocate and Veterans Advocate but that will not make one a lawyer.

In all fairness what you may be thinking of is a Tax Court Practioner which is not an attorney even if they have a so called JD:

To be a Patent Attorney one has to pass the Patent Bar.

To be admitted to Tax Court one has to be an attorney in good standing already.

Aside from being a patent attorney which is harder than becoming a regular attorney - what separate license requirements are you referring to that do not already involve being a member of a bar in good standing first? I'd be interested in knowing what I missed out on.

It is a shame that both evangelicals and the mainstream media want to make Romney's religion an issue.  You would think that in this day and age that would be irrelevent.

But it is an issue - look at all the crap the GOP shills threw at Obama about his Church?

Not unless you pass the bar first.
