Takeing bar without JD or apprenticeship.

Takeing bar without JD or apprenticeship.

I know that some states allow "reading for the law" to take bar exam without schooling, but is there any state or territory that lets you take it without either? I heard it once, but I doubt it's true. If anyone knows anything on it let me know. I am curious.

Can you imagine trying to find clients or jobs even if this were true...

Client/Job interviewer: So, where did you go to law school?

You: Errr, umm, I didn't

Although, if you have a really dumb client (definite possibility for the type of lawyer work you can get without a JD), they might think you're some sort of legal savant.

Friend: Tell me 'bout that lawyer you hired to get your son out of jail.
Client: He's a freakin' genius! This dude aced the bar exam without even going to law school! My cousin skipped 5th grade and I thought HE was smart!
