Re: Admission to the Bar
Posted by Star on 4/17/07
Are you licensed to practice in Florida? You need to get licensed
in at least one state - by taking and passing the bar exam - before
you can practice in any federal court. Once you are licensed in one
federal court, you can get a license in another federal court (most
US District Courts want you to be licensed either by the highest
court in the state, or be admitted by another District Court).
Have you checked the requirements to practice before the federal
administrative or customs court?
As I said above, you at least need to be licensed to practice law in
one state - it doesn't matter which - and if you aren't licensed to
practice law in any state, then you have to take the bar exam, pass
it, and then pass a professional responsibility (MPRE) exam, and go
through a background check.
Hope this helps!
