I'm a International Lawyer. Please HELP
« on: June 29, 2011, 04:31:47 PM »
I'm a lawyer from India and wanted to know what are the steps I will have to take in order to practice law in CA.  I have gotten my Bachelors in LLB from India and practicing as a lawyer in India. Will I have to attend a Law college in USA? or can I just have to take the BAR exam since I'm practicing law in India. I'll really appreciate the replies.

You'll need to complete an LLM program here in the states and pass the appropriate exams to be licensed in the jurisdiction where you want to practice.
