    Just wondering if a first in English followed by a GDL and LLM from Yale is enough to take the New York Bar?

    Do you have a first in English?
    Have you been offered a place at Yale?

    Possibly.

    Have you been posting under another account? Someone was asking almost an identical question today.

    JSP might be able to give you the answer straight off or you can contact NY Bar.

    The rules are here. Its not straightforward in that case.

    The problem is most people go with 3 year qualifying Law degrees and a GDL is not. I am not convinced the NY Bar will accept that even if converted to an LLB will meet their criteria, even after Yale. I could find out but tbh you can ask them yourself or read the rules.
