Start a Law Firm…In North Carolina?

Go east, young lawyer if you want to start a law firm.  As this article reports, a recent study released by the Pope Center for Higher Education shows that North Carolina needs more lawyer in light of recent population growth and a strong economy.  The catch – only graduates of accredited ABA law schools qualify to take the North Carolina bar.  And while the bar accepts comity, waive ins don’t come cheap – expect to pay $1500 for comity admission.

Have you moved to a new state to take advantage of the economy? In what circumstances would you consider it? And North Carolina readers – is the article true? When it comes to law practice, is North Carolina a better place to be?.
