Goofs

When Josh asks Sam to quit private practice and serve as deputy chief of staff, among the reasons Sam cites for his reluctance to return to the White House is that his fiancée, also an attorney, would have to retake the bar exam to practice law in D.C. The D.C. Bar admits already-practicing attorneys from other states without requiring them to take a new bar exam, provided that they graduated from a law school accredited by the American Bar Association and that when they took their original bar exam, they received a high enough score on the Multistate Bar Examination and multi-state legal ethics exam (multiple-choice tests used by many states as part of their bar exams). DC's admission requirements are common knowledge among lawyers on the East Coast, and both Sam and Josh should have known better. See more »
