Crossing The Border?

Postby Scallywaggums » Sat Jun 19, 2010 8:30 pm

1) Canada/NorthEast US. ... ? How do-able is the switch? For example, U. of Toronto boasts that NY treats its grads as US equals, but the number of U. Toronto grads who take positions in NYC is small. This is probably in large part due to Canadians wanting to stay in Canada: Anyone have experience or data on finding a good NYC or NorthEast US job as a Canadian graduate? Also, any input on moving from a US Law School to a Canadian position?

2) There was a thread asking about European BigLaw which was reduced to rubble before being answered... any genuine input on whether a US LS grad, say from T-14, could get a job as a well-paid lawyer in a primarily English-speaking European country straight out of graduation?

Re: the second one you're pretty much just looking at London then(I don't think there's a huge US legal presence in Ireland or Scotland but I have admittedly not looked into that). And the answer is yes in theory...but from what I understand it's very competitive to get and you're going to have to have a good reason for wanting to go there(beyond the usual I want to live abroad for a bit and experience living somewhere else etc etc).
