I'm completely clueless on the subject of practicing law in the US after attending law school in Europe, and so I'm picking the collective brain of LSD on the subject. The reason is that the firm for which my spouse works, and my soon-to-be employer, is pressuring me to go to law school in Europe, so that we can commit to more than the one year overseas to which we're currently committed, beginning this summer.
Frankly, I really want to go to a US law school in 2009, but want to be better prepared to fight this battle. I like my future coworkers a lot, and respect their opinions, but most are economists and not lawyers, and all are European, so don't really have a clue as to how the US system works. I tried the "I can't study federal Indian law in Europe," but was parried with "do international human rights law instead." Thing is, I'd have a great future working for this firm after I graduate, if I wanted to, so I don't want to burn that bridge unnecessarily. And don't want to cramp my spouse's wonderful career there. And my spouse and I have even agreed to look into my coming back for 1L on my own, so he could potentially commit to two years on site.
Arg. Like I need this pressure right now. Advice?
