I’d go with USC. Job opps in the UK are gonna be nil for a bit, and that degree might be an albatross.

How about job prospects in the US ( for foreigners)? Is it any better than it is in the UK?

The job prospects are definitely better. The UK legal sector is always a bit odd, since you really don’t even need any degree to practice law there and the licensing process there is convoluted, requires apprenticing and even more formal practical training. The US is more straightforward and to the point with a few rigorous exams, so firms are a little bit better positioned to recruit on an as need basis rather than years in to the future.

Also, the UK is even more hostile to immigrants than the US right now. I think you’re more likely to get a work visa here than the UK.

Despite what some people may say, there is a market for foreign lawyers here in major metro areas, you just need to find them. The JD is still preferred, but there’s work for the LLMs, too. You still have to hunt hard and be ready to run, or have in demand foreign language skills for legal translation work, which is also in high demand.
