If somebody graduates from law an ABA accredited law school and is given a J.D, and they decide they don't want to take the state bar just yet, then how long can they wait to take the bar(any state)?
Let me rephrase my question. Can somebody take the bar a five or ten years later? Not everybody goes to law school to become lawyers, and some go for the J.D degree and knowledge, but later in life they might decide to take a state bar. Can they take it? Or is the time expired and they are forever barred from taking the bar? Is it an ABA rule? Is it a written rule anywhere?
