It may not qualify a student to take the bar examination or to satisfy requirements for admission to the practice of law in any other jurisdiction.  A student intending to seek admission to practice law should contact the admitting authority in the jurisdictions where the student intends to qualify to sit for the bar examination or to be admitted to practice for information regarding their legal education requirements.
