Practicing Law Overseas
« on: August 06, 2005, 02:32:19 AM »
I haven't found much discussion on this topic...

Has anybody considered going to another country after law school? Not just England/France, etc, but countries like Pakistan, India or Indonesia? What would it take to become a practicing lawyer in a country such as that? Should I even waste my money by going to a law school here in the US?

Interesting question.  I know that some schools here offer streamlined coursework for overseas attorneys wanting to practice here, so I am confident that at least a few other countries would have similar programs in place.

Well, I was born there, moved to the US when I was 6.

Why wouldn't I want to go there? I've been there many times, and the people and country are beautiful. The image given of Pakistan via our media here is overblown and complete BS, if that's where you're going.

not at all.  My grandparents and all my paternal relatives live there and, if you were a white guy I'd say it may not be the best idea...  But if you're pakistani - then it is all good.

I'm thinking about Saudi Arabia, the thought of ruling over women is nice. Plus If I win they cut the defendants fingers off.

No I haven't. But I saw a show about women in Saudi Arabia on Discovery Times channel that said they could not drive.

This isn't the case?

Probably is, but I meant that you must not have seen the crazyass way that middle eastern men drive.

I have seen Iraqi guys drifting up and down the main drag in white cars, it was a pretty cool video
