Sitting for the California Bar as a Foreigner — How can I sit for the Bar Even If I Have Not Taken an LLM in the US?

My answer is: YES. You are smart and have accomplished a lot in your home country, and many times, in other countries as well. California does not require a law degree prior to the bar, and there are many successful people who have passed the bar even without having a law degree at all (most notably, one of the LegalZoom founders, Edward Hartman)
