How can the mayor, hire a girl straight out of law school, who has not even passed the bar yet? She can't even do any legal work until she passes the bar and is amitted to the bar.

Easy. That's Utica NY. It's called "patronage" or a sex dump for Robert Palmieri. No other logical reason.

You must not have a clue, patronage or not, if she has officially graduated with a law degree she can do "legal" work. She can't argue in court in a prosecutorial manner representing the gov't or the people vis-a-vis the gov't without the bar, but she can work administratively, as well as in an advisory and consulting capacity to the mayor's office, et al. She can't directly try court cases. However, as legal representation for a defendant, one does not need to be a lawyer, on the bar or have a degree of any kind. The law/constitution, etc allows any citizen to defend or represent in court. The United States Code (USC)- as the United States (which administers the U.S. courts) is a private corporate enterprise and not a freely elected representative government- does not permit an individual to represent or advertise themselves as an attorney-at-law doing practice under such without being "barred".
