Work in Korea

Postby june2014 » Fri Nov 29, 2013 7:41 am

I have questions I just can't seem to find the answers to, and if anyone knows the answers to them, I'd really appreciate a reply. I'm wondering if there is anything a JD lawyer fluent in both Korean and English can do in Korea in general crime, or just anything other than corporate law/banking/international transactions/tax etc along those lines. Also, do firms in Korea require JD lawyers to have some experience in the US, or is it possible to work in Korea right after passing the bar? I know that some firms require foreign lawyers to practice a minimum of two years in the home jurisdiction of the international firm, but I'm not sure if this is the case with most or all firms.
