I graduated from an ABA law school with a JD. State of florida has complete their character and fitness investigation and I received my notice of compliance - Florida classify me as a certified legal intern.However, I have not yet passed the bar exam. I am wondering what I am allowed to practice with certified legal intern from the notice of compliance. For instance, could I open an office?

Lawyer's Assistant: Because education law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?

State of florida

Lawyer's Assistant: Has anything been filed or reported?

I filed a bar application and character and fitness investigation is complete. The state bar issued me notice of compliance

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

This is it

you are an intern until you pass the bar

in my opinion, no you could not open an office until you pass the bar

admission is 2 parts, get your notice of compliance and pass the bar

you just need the 2nd part and then you can practice and open your office

Florida is one of the hardest states

they also make it real hard to practice in another state other than Florida, no way to waive in either.

what do people normally do if they cannot pass the bar exam ? Do they practice paralegal?
Lawyer: Michael Bradley, Lawyer replied 11 months ago

many keep trying

many try other states with higher pass rates

many never practice and go into the business field

I hate to say but most of my friends no longer practice

some do paralegal

Would I be able to do paralegal with Florida's certified legal intern?
Lawyer: Michael Bradley, Lawyer replied 11 months ago

good site for info on paralegal

I would assume that a firm would jump at a law graduate to help as you are more qualified

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
