I have an LLB qualification from SA. Is it applicable in Europe?
South African LLB qualification
Hi Sbu, did you manage to find some answers. We are also quite new in Europe and would like to know what steps to take with a current SA LLB
Hi there - not sure what you mean by « applicable ». I work in Biglaw and there are a couple guys in my team who have South African LLBs and are working with us - they just asked to do the QLTS within a couple years of joining. Magic circle finance teams have a very high number of SA LLB lawyers who operate as normal English lawyers but are titled “foreign associates”
I would recommend that you qualify as a lawyer in South Africa at an international firm and specialise in an international field, particularly Finance (project finance, acquisition finance etc.) or arbitration and then make the move to the U.K.... that is if your goal is to become a Biglaw associate.
I can put you in touch with my SA colleague if that helps?
Hi Lulu, I would very much appreciate the link up. Europe, specifically Germany makes it very difficult as the profession here has a State exam of which it requires first a German Law degree. Foreign associate may be the best option
