Qualify as an attorney in the United States

Interested in expanding your career options globally? You may be eligible to sit the California Bar Exam or New York Bar Exam and become a US attorney in California or New York.

In today’s increasingly globalised world, demand continues to grow for those who understand the workings and complexities of the law of more than one jurisdiction. The United States is the world's largest legal market, and admission in this jurisdiction can help to significantly broaden your career opportunities, both with US firms and with global firms generally.

Qualifying as a US attorney adds valuable credentials to an ambitious international young lawyer’s CV.
