I, myself am a foreigner, I have a JD, and will be taking the bar this July.
I have already done my 50 hours pro bono in the States, and I have an affidavit signed by my supervisor. It dates back to June 2016.
However, I had to leave U.S. in July 2017 due to the expiration of my visa. I have been working at my home country since - but at a non-legal job.
Not to get my self worried before I burn the bridge of passing the bar; but I am curious, how is the process when someone in my position applies for admission to the NY bar?
I have a temporary background in the U.S. on an F1 student visa. I have volunteered at legal clinics while at law school, I have worked when I had work authorization to work; but vast majority of my background has not been in the US; in fact it has not even been in one place; because I have constantly been on the move since graduating from high school. An academic gypsy, one might say. Before law school, I was in Canada doing my BsC. I also have employment history there. My original citizenship is Turkish.
Does anyone know how the C&F process and the ultimate admission is for foreign bar passers?
