Ha, no. Life conditions are significantly better here and you have to work 10 times harder in Chile. Plus, we like it here, and we want to keep our family in the US for now, unless some extraordinarily good offer in Chile would come along (doubtful), we won't move back. Even with certain advantages in Chile (cheaper tuition, my father being an attorney and owning a lawfirm) I still think I'm better off career-wise here in the US.
If thats true why do even IVY league grads keep showing up on the news crying about how they can't find work and how college "betrayed" them?
I was saying to move here immediatly after getting licensed so it wouldnt be bad career wise, but its your life.You do know that lots of US attorneys never set foot in a US classroom though right?
I'm not going to do the legwork for you, but yeah there was a shitload of those crybabies all over the news about the years back(albeit mostly MBA's) don't you remember that crybaby who stood out was a sign on him passing out resumes in a suit in NY for over a year before Donald Trump ended up hiring him(or some other media hungry rich guy)?I get it, your school is Jesus and everyone else is just Magdalin gettin'did by him behind the pue, etc,etc.........
As far as I know, only New York allows foreign grads to just take the bar without an LLM. But they have to be trained in a common law country. Chile is a civil law country. Even if you could take the bar as a Chilean attorney, the pass rate for foreign trained attorneys is somewhere around 30%.
That makes sense. I've always wondered how, even with an LLM, a foreign-educated attorney could pass the bar considering the difference in legal systems and laws, while actually knowing enough to practice law.
