Online Law Schools / Re: Specialization Exams

One specialized exam is the patent bar.  If your undergraduate work included any STEM subject courses, this bar exam might help. 

In any case, though, any government job you apply for will not be a slam dunk.  Just check out the website of any government agency.  They want you to know more than the people that already work there.  Heck, I trained and took the VITA exams.  They were tedious and the passing score was 80.  And, this was for a volunteer, part time position for the IRS.  I passed the exams that took me many hours to complete and I only work 3 hours a week; until April 16th.

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.

The Mid-Atlantic School of Law is similar to Novus and it's only 100.00 per module.

The 26 credits are law school credits in subjects that the bar exam tests.  The 26 credits are after getting the non-bar JD.  By the time you enter law school, your BA should already be in hand.

Is your school on the accredited list?  Find out:

You are right about that.  It looks like our friend may have to do some volunteer legal work under an attorney's supervision and get published before approaching another state about taking its bar exam, then.

Write the Concord graduate who petitioned  Massachusetts to take its bar exam.  Ask him how he went about petitioning that state's bar exam.  I posted the court opinion on this forum around October of last year.  Even though it is a different state, the procedure may be similar.

It's called the National Conference of Bar Examiners.  Their website is

Click on the Publications tab.  The book that has the chart is available for download.  The title of the book is The Comprehensive Guide to Bar Admission Requirements.

The National Board of Examiners (I think that is the name of the organization.), has a chart that shows which state will allow a student to sit for its bar exam.  I think that New York will allow you to sit for its bar exam.  But don't quote me.  Check with the National Board of Examiners.
