Law job in Israel

Postby Anonymous User » Mon Jun 27, 2016 3:23 pm

Rising 2L trying to think of the best way to end up in Israel for law. Are there any other firms there other than Greenberg, and is there anything I should be doing now to prepare?

There are *tons* of firms in Israel, and all of the ones worth working at specifically recruit US-qualified lawyers to help negotiate deals/transactions/suits involving US parties.

Here's an article that lays our firms ranked by practice area: http://duns100.globes.co.il/article-1000916373
(in Hebrew).

As for preparing - how's your Hebrew? Lots of firms want US-qualified lawyers, but Israeli clients don't want to deal with their own lawyers in English. The Israeli Bar exam also requires a very high level of Hebrew. So if you're not there yet, that's a great place to start.

Are you planning on making aliyah? Or just want to work in Israel for a bit?

Planning on making Aliyah at some point assuming jobs are good and I don't change my mind down the line. I definetely need to improve my Hebrew (let me know if you have advice there).

Hoping to do 5 years doing capital markets, then skip the bar exam (5-year-practice rule)
