While it’s not required to go to law school in New Mexico to practice in the state it can be to your benefit as many local employers like to see that on a resume.
Upon graduation of law school you will be required to take and pass the bar exam. The bar exam is taken over two days in which the first is geared towards written responses and the second being a multiple choice test.
Once you pass the bar exam you will take part in an official ceremony where you will be sworn in as an individual legally able to practice law in the state of New Mexico.
Your grade point average in college and scores on the LSAT are the two major determining factors for admission to most law schools.
