MBA would not be worth the extra effort if you are going to practice law. The LLM is of dubious value as well since the JD is considered the highest professional degree in law.

Either one is fine if you want a California law license. Taft traditionally gives low grades, I graduated with something like a 2.79 and passed the bar on the first go. Your odds of actually getting through such a program are about 10-1 against though. The Feds or State will not likely hire you though you can likely work as contract Public defender. As for getting jobs, be ready to fly solo unless you have relatives in the business. If it is geographically possible to attend an ABA or non ABA state accredited law school, do so instead.
The correct term is Pro Hac Vice. The original poster had some delusional idea they could be a lawyer without passing the bar, I believe they were not a Distance Learning Grad but a non ABA law school grad whose Kentucky law school went under without getting accreditation leaving them unable to take the bar in any state.
The only limited license I know of is typically between neighboring states. You can apply to practice in a state you are not licensed in on a case by case basis. Oddly, many neighboring states don't have reciprocity and an attorney may have cross over responsibilities. Hence the need for a limited license.
An IRS Enrolled Agent is an enrolled agent not a legal consultant.
A form filler outer is paralegal or public notary not a legal consultant.
Advising someone on their bankruptcy petition is practice of law.
Being unqualified to do any of things is just that.
Trial strategy and legal memoranda are normally directed at attorneys.
Says who? Unless you are licensed as a Foreign Legal Consultant, California Immigration Consultant or are a Medical legal Consultant like a RN or MD, which you obviously are not, you will be engaging unlicensed practice of the law if you "consult"" with unsuspecting clients who think you are proving some legal advice of value. Consulting is providing legal advice, you need a license to do so.
