Where is the best place to practice Law?
« on: December 21, 2006, 08:23:30 AM »
In deciding which Bar Exam to take after graduation, I often wonder where in the country is the highest demand for new lawyers.  Any thoughts?

IMHO, take the NY bar. If you don't want to practice in NY, every state that allows waive-in would let you waive into their state with passage of the difficult NY bar.

If you're West coast, I guess the same thing would go for the CA bar but I only know the East coast.

yeah, but alot of states don't allow waive-in until a period of time (usually 7 years).  I would try to decide where you want to live.
