Inhouse counsel is required to take the CA bar in CA?

I will have a NY bar membership but work in CA.

Generally speaking, many companies require inhouse counsel with out-of-state membership to take the CA bar again?

How about law firms in CA?

Your questions isn't wholly clear. Are you asking whether a law firm situated in CA requires attorneys with out-of-state credentials who practice in CA to take the CA bar?

Yes. Absolutely. How is that even a question?

If you practice immigration or something entirely federal, can't you practice with an out of state license?

If you are a general counsel, you likely wouldn't qualify for that exception

He said in house counsel so he's not asking about law firms

CA has a Registered In House Counsel status with the bar. Not sure if that's sufficient for most companies, though.
