International Opportunities

Postby Anonymous User » Thu Jul 12, 2012 4:50 pm

Hello everyone,

I'm a rising 3L and for some time now, have been interested in working abroad. Unfortunately, it seems that the legal profession is not entirely conducive to doing that. Was wondering if anyone had any tips or suggestions on how to approach finding international opportunities?

if you don't have particular ties, you can take an unpaid internship (or paid ones, typically coming with small stipends) overseas, in a region that you desire. I know someone who interned for free in denmark with a start-up company. In a few months she got a position with a scandinavian law firm. I don't know the particulars though.... she's obviously not admitted to the bar...
