What is a J.D. Preferred Job?
A J.D.-preferred job or J.D.-advantage job is a type of job for which a passing score on the bar exam isn’t required.
So, employers will usually consider an individual who has a J.D. but hasn’t passed the bar exam. A candidate’s knowledge of the law, acquired through a J.D. program, and/or experience in a law-related capacity are what is deemed useful within the available role.
