Practice in a state is controlled by the Bar for that state. To practice in California, you have to be a member of the California Bar. The requirements vary state to state. Generally recent law school graduates and relatively new lawyers must pass the bar exam in the state in which they want to practice. You can also get special permission from the court to work on a particular case in that state. If you've been a lawyer for a few years, you may be able to apply to the bar without taking the test. In California, in addition to the typical fitness, background checks, etc., you have to have actively practiced law for four years. Full details are available on the California Bar web site.
