Maine Exam RSA
I am currently applying to take the Maine State Exam. I became an LSIT in Pennsylvania where I went to school. I just received a call from the board stating their attorney has reread the RSA and thinks the prior interpretation of allowing out of state LSIT’s to sit for the exam is incorrect. His opinion is that your must be a Maine LSIT with Maine experience. (I qualify as a Maine LSIT, but never applied)
Based on the following RSA do you think he is correct?
