A limited license is granted to an attorney from one state who gets a job as an in-house counsel in a different state.  A patent bar exam applicant must have a STEM degree.

Corporate attorney license available in some states requires you are already an attorney - end of story.

So where is your JD from again?  If you would tell us, I can can tell you where you can be admitted.

sorry for the late response....

basically i have a JD and a masters and 2 bachelors degree..however i do not want to practice in court...are there any limited licenses i can take without taking the bar exam? i still want to work in the legal field, but definitely do not want to be a court lawyer or spend all that money taking the 3 day bar exam plus the course.

i do not want to work as a paralegal with all my education. i am just wondering what my options are. are there any limited licenses available for me or career paths i can go with a JD and some sort of limited license without being a full fledged lawyer?

WTF? Just take the bar. Once you do that you can do it all (don't have to, but can do)

It's ok to admit you are scared, but come on. It's just a test. If you failed it a few times just find a way to pass it (private tutor,etc)

Unless you "JD" is Novus or made out of crayon there should be at least one state out there willing to take you.
Is your degree not ABA? If online did you not pass the FYBX?

You are either unqualified or allergic. Which is it and why?

He can be a non-lawyer.

The first choice (unqualified) is the most likely. I agree.

An employed paralegal earns more than an unemployed lawyer.
