Transparency for the Law firms include
Explaining why you are leaving your current position, and they want to see a copy of your law school transcript and your Bar Membership number in advance to forwarding to the hiring partner and selecting attorneys for interviews.
On your resume they are looking for job longevity and the law firms you have worked for in addition to your practice areas and specialties. It is also good to show the industries you are working for, and your graduating class year giving them an idea of how many years of experience you have.
Generally, attorneys need to be a member of the Bar in the state they are working in.
In many cases if an attorney has been practicing for five plus years, they can waive into the state bar they want to become a member of. Sometimes if they have less than five years’ experience and they passed their bar exam with high marks they can also waive in. In all cases it depends on the state you want to waive into.
Sometimes, attorneys who are members of the USPTO can start working at a firm when they are not members of the state bar the firm is located in. In this case they usually have to sit for the bar in the state they are working in within a certain period of time.
