    No. He must pass the Bar and be licensed in whatever state he chooses to practice on a regular basis.

    However, on rare occasions and with strict guidelines he may be allowed to practice on a one time basis (pro hac vice).

    Though I don't know if that would apply to attorneys from other countries.

    Google pro hac vice for each state to find out the requirements and procedures.

      Anybody can take the Cal bar, you don't even have to have gone to law school.

      Might be hard to pass but the option exists.

        That's partly true, as written, but applicants for the California must have a "legal education" that can include four years of study under the supervision of a state judge or attorney in lieu of law school.

        So, not just "anybody" can take the Cal bar.
