I am a lawyer in Florida and have been practicing for 4 years now. I have been admitted to the bar for four and a half years. Admission to the Illinois Bar by motion requires five years of practice or I have to take the Illinois Bar Exam. There is an oppening in the Chicago Cubs legal department that closely fits my experience level. As a native Midwesterner and lifelong Cubs fan this would appear to be a dream job situation. I am wondering if anyone on the board can provide some advice/networking in regards to this opportunity. The original job posting is listed below. My main concern at this point is that the job posting requires "admission to practice in Illinois (or commitment to gain admission immediately following employment)". For me that would require taking the Illinois Bar Exam or somehow being able to put off my bar admission until at least this November or next February. Is my best and only realistic option here to commit to taking the Illinois Bar? Thanks in advance for your help/advice.
