Going foreign options

Postby Anonymous User » Tue Oct 11, 2011 3:04 pm

What are the options for a monoglot outside the U.S. for summer or post-graduation firm employment? Talking to my OCS, they said Canada is impossible to crack and that the UK is really for corporate and international arbitration with megafirms in London. A lawyer I know said that Brussels is fairly receptive to American-trained antitrust lawyers, even if they don't speak another language (obviously a negative, but not a total disqualifier). How about Australia? Anywhere else an English-only American lawyer would find worth trying?

the easiest will be a US firm (or UK firm that recruits here) with foreign offices.
