  2.        is a current member of the American Bar Association (ABA)*; and,
  3.        is licensed to practice law in the jurisdiction where s/he is being recommended to join.

*US lawyers must be ABA lawyer members; international lawyers may be ABA associate or ABA lawyer members. Fellows staff will verify ABA membership.
