Working abroad

Postby chanchito » Sun Jun 20, 2010 6:54 pm

For personal reasons I'd like to be in Western Europe after law school (already accepted at NYU). What pathway within law school should I follow to make this a reality? Can I do corporate law abroad?

International law? Or yeah, corporate sounds like a feasible route.

As one who is also interested in working in so-called "international law", corporate law, business law, or IP law would be much more effective than international law (which is more treaties and the like, and hardly requires working outside of the states). Pick a specialty you like and enjoy, and then learn the laws of a country in Western Europe (i.e. know European law extremely well in your area of specialty). Language skills are a plus, though not essential, as most educated Europeans speak better English than many Americans.

Hey, thank you for your help. I was worried that it was not possible because I am not doing law school in Europe. :D
