Nye krav til New York Bar-eksamen

Fra januar næste år skal alle kandidater til the New York Bar have udført 50 timers pro bono arbejde. Arbejdet kan udføres i en anden stat eller et andet land, men kun arbejde, der har været udført efter den 1. maj 2012, kan medregnes.

The NY Courts skriver om de nye Pro Bono Bar Admission Requirements:
“Foreign-educated candidates planning to acquire an LL.M. degree from an American Bar Association-approved law school in the United States for the purpose of qualifying to take the New York bar examination under Court of Appeals Rule 520.6 may engage in their 50 hours of qualifying pro bono service one year before the commencement of the LL.M. course of study. Of course, such LL.M. candidates may perform some of all of their 50 hours of qualifying work in the United States, either during or after an LL.M. course of study. You may elect to determine if you have passed the New York bar examination before you engage in qualifying pro bono work, but the 50-hour Requirement must be completed before applying for admission.

Even if a foreign-educated applicant is admitted to practice in a foreign jurisdiction, the 50 hours of pro bono work must be law-related, and an attorney admitted to practice in the jurisdiction where the work is performed must complete the supervisor certification on the Affidavit of Compliance that must be filed with the applicant's admission application.”
