A: Venezuela's laws are not US laws. Lawyer's diploma is not pre-requisite for lawyers' qualification.

A: There are LLM programs out there that are geared toward qualifying candidates who received law degrees overseas to sit for the bar exam in the U.S. I don't know the details, but I have met attorneys who obtained their law degrees overseas, then sat for the bar in a U.S. state after finishing one of these programs. Your friend can research these online. Good luck
