I think Alabama is a hard bar association to qualify for--I may be wrong.
I think there is a "lawyer glut" in Alabama--everyone wants to live there due to low cost of living, good climate, etc.
You could PROBABLY get entry into the California Bar, then do Federal stuff and work pro hac vice.
Another strategy might be to get your California DL degree, pass CA bar, then get an LL.M. from an Alabama school or ABA school. Kiss a bunch of @$$; and they might let you sit for it. (That strategy adds another year off of your precious youth, but I can't think of anything else--except move to California!)
Again, I could be wrong on all counts.
Good luck whatever you do!
