i've asked this elsewhere, but thought i might see what people here say...
is practicing law abroad with a US JD possible? actually, i'm sure it's possible...but is it likely? i see that there are a lot of "gloabal law firms", which i had heard offered opportunities to work abroad for those that really wanted them, and earned them. but recently i emailed one and they basically said that this was impossible. are there any realistic ways of getting a job abroad with a JD (ex. not working for the UN, which about 2 people get to do every year)? i don't have my heart set on some vague idea of "practicing international law" or anything, but given that i've focused so much time and energy on studying europe before law school, and that i would later like to focus my grad studies on the same area, i would like to think that it's at least possible. any ideas?
