Even fluency is unlikely to get you there. The best thing would be to get a decent paying job and travel to Europe. Law school isn't a backdoor to being a well-paid expat.


I don't know how accurate that is. I know a few people at UT summering at the London offices of V5 firms. If a few UT students can get London, I'd have to imagine HYS students could get there in larger numbers if they wanted it.


Magic circle law firms will never choose a HYS student over tons of UoL/Oxbridge trainees or other sort of LLB holders from the other unis in the UK. Plus, you will not be able to commence your practice as a barrister or solicitor unless you have passed the required UK law modules.

Best regards

PS I'm talking about a legal job here, not some sort of banking or audit career.
