If so, I may have solution for you.

I'll ask again, if you have the diploma why can you not practice in KY?

The National Board of Examiners (I think that is the name of the organization.), has a chart that shows which state will allow a student to sit for its bar exam.  I think that New York will allow you to sit for its bar exam.  But don't quote me.  Check with the National Board of Examiners.

It's called the National Conference of Bar Examiners.  Their website is  www.ncbex.org.

Click on the Publications tab.  The book that has the chart is available for download.  The title of the book is The Comprehensive Guide to Bar Admission Requirements.

According to the ABA Chart - graduates of unapproved (non DL) law schools (not state of ABA approved) may be eligible to take the bar in:

DC: Graduates of non-ABA-approved law
schools can write the exam if they have successfully
completed at least 26 semester hours in subjects
tested on the DC bar exam from an ABA-approved
law school.

Looks like possibly also Guam but I have no further details on that.

You would need to follow up with the Bar examiners in each jurisdiction for the details and ins and outs.

NY is for graduates of unapproved schools who are already lawyers.

Guam - No, ABA chart is wrong

DC - definitely yes - http://www.dcappeals.gov/dccourts/docs/rule46b_admission_by_examination_rev.pdf

Go for it, DC is one of the best jurisdictions in the nations.

So to clarify you need 26 semester hours from an ABA law school to qualify in DC.

All good information, but can anyone answer this one simple question for me?

If it was a state approved law school in KY why can't she take the bar in KY?

There must be more to this story than we are  being told.
