Post: Admission to the Bar
Posted by Martin Roy Leon on 1/14/07

I am in Florida and I just completed my J.D. from West
Coast School of Law (a correspondence school). I also
hold a LL.B and an LL.M from a university in
Colombia (the country). I am fluent in English, I did
about three years of my undergraduate work at Arizona
State University. I am a practicing attorney in good
standing in the country of Colombia.
I know that most state bars will not accept the J.D. from
a California correspondence law school. I am looking to
combine my foreign LL.B and LL.M with the J.D. from WCSL
and to be admitted into one of the state bars. It makes
no difference to me which state admits me. I am only
looking to handle Customs and Federal Administrative
matters. I do not want work in any local or state courts.
I am presently researching the various state bars, i.e.
New York, Texas. Rumor has it that I might be able to be
admitted on a motion vs. taking a state bar exam. Does
anybody have any experience or ideas on this matter?
I would greatly appreciate any assistance in this matter.
