Morrison v. Board of Law Examiners of North Carolina

This case posed the question whether a state may constitutionally condition its willingness to allow a lawyer to be admitted to practice without taking a bar examination on the willingness of the state in which that lawyer is already admitted, and in which that lawyer has been recently practicing, to reciprocate for lawyers from the admitting state. We worked with the plaintiff’s counsel seeking Supreme Court review. The Court, however, denied the petition.
