Hi,
I know for sure that you could practice in New York after earning 20 credits in L.LM program (thesis doesn't count)and passing the BAR. In relation to other states, you need to go on the official state BAR association website and read information concerning international students.
Best regards,
K.

If you were to go a google search for the term "Massachusetts Board of Bar Examiners" you would find the official site for the MA bar. There's usually an FAQ section and if that's not there, there will definitely be a phone number you can contact. From what I've heard though many foreign attorneys get there L.L.M and then practice on it. But calling the bar will give you that info.
