WHICH WAY PLS


Lexis
MY 1ST DEGREE IS BUSINESS ADMINISTRATION. I AM NOW ENROLLED TO STUDY LAW (LLB). I NEED ADVISE AS TO WHICH DIRECTION TO TAKE. SHOULD I CONTINUE WITH STUDYING LAW OR CHANGE MY ADMISSION TO STUDY ACCOUNTING ON MASTER'S LEVEL (MASTER OF PROFESSIONAL ACCOUNTING).
SECONDLY, IS ACCOUNTING BETTER THAN LAW?

I WAS RELIABLY INFORMED THAT AS AN AFRICAN WHO STUDIED LAW, EACH TIME I CHANGE STATE OR LOCATION, I WILL BE MADE TO UNDERGO BRIDGING COURSE TO BE ABLE TO PRACTICE IN THE NEW LOCATION. BUT IF I STUDY ACCOUNTING & GET CHARTERED, I COULD WORK ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD WITHOUT HAVING TO DO ANY BRIDGING COURSE. IS THIS TRUE?

Hi,
what I can tell you is that in most cases an foreign trained law graduate would need to do additional studying in order to be permitted to practise law in another country.We can use the example of Canada. A Kenyan law graduate would firstly need to have his legal qualifications evaluated by the Canadian authorities.Thereafter the authorities will issue a directive to the graduate to study and pass a set number of courses of Canadian law. This is done to ensure that the applicant will be conversant with the basic laws and principles of the law of Canada.After completing the required law courses the applicant will then be permitted to proceed with the process of becoming a lawyer. Unfortunately I do not have information about the accountancy profession and accreditation processes. It is up to you to choose between law or accountancy.However, I would point out that the legal field is saturated at the moment and that you should only choose the legal profession if you have the passion and energy to work hard and make a difference.
