Passing a U.S. state bar exam and becoming a U.S. attorney adds valuable credentials to your CV and gives you the capability and expertise to work with international clients, deal with cross-border transactions, and understand the differences between U.S. and international law. Beyond choosing to practice law in the U.S. or abroad, you may be eligible for many positions in specialised areas such as consulting, international arbitration, international human rights, corporate in-house counsel for international businesses, and many more.
Graduates with a full-time, three- or four-year common law degree, which must be of substantial and durational equivalence to a U.S. law degree, may be immediately eligible to apply to sit the New York bar examination.
Our International Bar preparation courses are offered at locations around the world or at home over six or 10-month periods. The format of the course includes recorded video lectures, access to our online learning platform and 1:1 personal support by a qualified U.S. lawyer.
