Work outside the US ?

Postby afitouri » Tue May 01, 2012 7:14 pm

Hi guys,

I'm not sure where this question belongs, but I want to ask whether it's possible to use a legal education to work for US corporations overseas, or even to work for foreign corporations. I'm interested in going to Arabic-speaking countries or African countries, and have seen companies like GE post legal jobs in other countries on their websites, but am unsure whether a US legal education applies in other countries? Does it only "cut it" in some countries and not others?

Thanks for any tips you have.

We had a guy talk to my civ pro class about work he was doing in dubai. seemed like pretty high level stuff and he definitely went to law school in the states. If you speak arabic and go to a t14 I'd be you could probably get a nice job at a US firm's office abroad.
