Canadian student trying to do law school in Europe


Hello everyone,
My goal is to become a business lawyer in Europe, preferably Germany. But I am not so sure how to get there.
I am currently in university in Canada, when I am finished getting my major and minors I want to do law school in Europe. I am just not sure of the requirements.
Do I need to finish law school in Canada first then apply for Europe law schools? Or can I apply right after I'm done my major? I can't seem to find a straight answer.
Thanks

Hi Kristejna,
I think you can apply right after your major and do your LLB in Germany itself (in German). The other option would to do your LLB/JD in Canada, then do an LLM in Germany. Then sit for the German bar exam (in German) to qualify. So it becomes more difficult. If you really intend to practice law in EU or more specifically Germany, it is better to do your LLB from there as well in their local language. In any case, you'll require professional-level proficiency (C1 or C2) to navigate through legal German. Hope this helps.

As far as I am aware, solely doing an LL.M. in Germany does not allow you to sit the German bar exam. Please feel free to correct me if I am wrong.
