Excerpt: In the United States, admission to the bar is the granting of permission by a particular court system to a lawyer to practice law in that system. Each U.S. state and similar jurisdiction (e.g. territories under federal control) has its own court system and sets its own rules for bar admission (or privilege to practice law), which can lead to different admission standards among states. In most cases, a person who is "admitted" to the bar is thereby a "member" of the particular bar. In the canonical case, lawyers seeking admission must earn a Juris Doctor degree from a law school approved by the jurisdiction, and then pass a bar exam administered by it. Typically, there is also a character and fitness evaluation, which includes a background check. However there are exceptions to each of these requirements. A lawyer who is admitted in one state is not automatically allowed to practice in any other. Some states have reciprocal agreements that allow attorneys from other states to practice without sitting for another full bar exam; such agreements differ significantly among the states. The first bar exam in what is now the United States was instituted by Delaware Colony in 1763, as an oral examination before a judge. The other American colonies soon followed suit.

I was a lawyer. I like to think that, by the end, I was a pretty decent one. The most important thing I did in my career was help give Michael Angelo Morales a few extra years to watch his grandchildren grow. While the events preceding the scheduled execution in February 2006 were dramatic -- I personally appeared in television, radio, and in print, while we as a team worked with former Whitewater independent prosecutor Ken Starr and found ourselves facing potential disbarment and/or prosecution after it was discovered that our investigator had forged sworn juror declarations -- the real bulk of my work came from August to December 2006, when we prepared a brief hundreds of pages long which convinced United States District Court Judge Jeremy Fogel that the specific way in which California used lethal injection to execute people violated the U.S. Constitution. This photo shows the defense team during a lunch break at a hearing in the fall of 2006 -- from left to right, criminal defense attorney John Grele; my boss, David Senior; legal guru Richard Steinken; attorney Ginger Anders, who is now in the Solicitor General's Office; expert witness Dr. Mark Heath; and yours truly.

Belarus was formed in 1988 after the fall of the USSR. As a founding member and former president of the Center for Human Rights in Belarus, Vera Stremkovskaya is one of that country’s most respected legal practitioners, known for her willingness to take up the defense of politically unpopular clients. In retaliation, she has been harassed, threatened, and charged with libel. In March 1999, the Collegium of Advocates (the government-controlled bar association) issued a "stern reprimand" to Stremkovskaya because of her outspoken advocacy for human rights, threatening disbarment if she continued her work.
