Worth it to take NJ bar too?

Postby lilybbloom » Sat Nov 19, 2011 11:45 am

I'm taking the PA bar in July and the bar prep companies offer PA & NJ packages for only a small difference in price (though I'd also have to pay to take the NJ exam, which could be expensive; PA alone is like $500); I've also heard that a lot of people take both. Is there some advantage to having two bar admissions? I don't intend to practice in NJ, but I may move to NY at some point in my career- would having NJ be useful at all?

Not if you never intend to practice in NJ. However, if you are looking for a job it may increase the job prospects.
