In-house counsel and a limited license

Postby Anonymous User » Wed Feb 15, 2017 5:19 pm

Do any in-house attorneys here practice in a state under a limited law license? Any thoughts on this path rather than taking another bar exam?

I am trying to gauge how common/practical it is. Thanks!

I do not, but I have worked with multiple GC's in Illinois that have done this. Not sure on the exact requirements, but it doesn't appear to be difficult as long as you have the needed years of practice done and the job lined up.

Bump. Has any negotiated to getting a limited license instead of taking a new bar exam?
