NLS says the headline but it is the LLM from NYU that makes her eligible to practice.

That is just bizarre. What on earth is that meant to mean? The LLM has nothing to do with her being eligible to practice in London. She is a NLS alum as much as she is an Oxford and NYU alum as well. This being an India oriented website has elected to highlight her NLS link.

Not bizzare. She works at an American firm, had to give the NY bar and that was only possible by doing an LLM. UK Bar you can give sitting in India as well.

Um no. That's nonsense. There is exactly zero need to take or pass the NY bar or be a NYS Attorney in order to work for or be a partner at the London office of an American firm. By your logic, perhaps the (literally) dozens of UK (only) qualified partners working in the London or ME offices of US firms who are not NYS attorneys should simply pack-up and go home because clearly they cannot be working at an American firm even if their work ONLY involves English law.
