Getting a Law Degree Overseas and Working in Australia


Hi Crimson, I’m from Australia and thinking of studying Law in the US or UK. Where would you recommend I study and is it easy to get a job back here in Australia with a law degree from overseas?


Hi ya @a.cork

The UK is definitely better over the US for Law because it based upon the same Common Law principles and can be transferred to Australia with relative ease. If you studied Law at say Oxford, you would need to come back and have your qualifications assessed by the Legal Profession Admission Board and go from there to practice in your chosen state.
