ICLS US STATE BAR ADMISSIONS

 

 

Procedure for Admittance to Practice Law

The legal profession in the United States is governed by individual States.  In general, the education requirements to practice law may be satisfied by one of the two following pathways:

    1. Obtain a J.D. or LL.B.. degree from a law school approved by the American Bar Association ("ABA").

    2. Obtain an LL.B. from a fully accredited foreign University and then complete additional legal education from an ABA law school.  In most cases, this will mean being awarded an LL.M. degree

Candidates who have completed their coursework at the International Center for Legal Studies and have earned an LL.B. from the University of London would fall under pathway No.2 and would be required to complete the necessary additional legal education from an ABA law school. This means that you may, for example, earn your LL.B. in three years and then pursue an LL.M. degree for one to two years.  Under this scenario you may complete your overall legal education requirement in four years.

Fortunately, there is virtually no problem gaining admittance to an LL.M. program as long as you have a qualifying first law degree from an accredited law school such as the University of London.  A further advantage is that you will have avoided the high tuition cost of many ABA law schools for the first three years of law study.  Another advantage is that while you are pursuing your degree via this avenue, you can still be employed full-time.

Strategies

Many US students are working full-time and simply cannot afford to quit their jobs to attend a law school program, or simply cannot afford the high costs. Further, many students find the traditional admittance process with the LSAT exam and other barriers to be too burdensome.  With the International Center for Legal Studies one may obtain an affordable first-class legal education online and earn a fully accredited law degree from the prestigious University of London.

Non-US students can also become practicing lawyers in the United States by using these strategies.

Applicants are advised to check with each US State Board of Law Examiners or Bar Authority for their official admissions rules.  These rules change from time to time and applicants are advised to stay informed, especially as they pertain to their educational background.
