  • Since when does the GDL confer eligibility to sit an American bar exam?

  • Yes, but where would she place on YourBarristerGirlfriend.com?

  • Depends on the state she's looking to qualify into. She may have been waived in on the usual JD requirement by that state's board. I did in my state of residence. Good on her for this achievement and hope she finds her calling with the fashion law thing.

  • Plus there is no 'multistate' American Bar. 50 states, 50 bars, plus DC, Puerto Rico, &c.

    Maybe she's just sitting the Multistate Professional Responsibility Examination, MPRE, required for a bunch of states, but sufficient to practice in none. California's the only place I think she would be able to sit in, off the top of my head.

  • GDL with BVC (now BPTC) or LPC does and has given for many years the opportunity to sit the New York Bar. I have successfully sat the NY Bar and enjoy membership after the same program through the then College of Law. I wish her well, she seems focused.

  • You don't need any qualification to be eligible to sit the US bar. The GDL merely conferred eligibility to sit the BPTC. The fact that she is returning to the US to sit the multistate bar is unrelated to her completion of the GDL. Obviously.

  • I don't see why it's a big deal. I got into plenty of bars when I was 18
