JD from Hong Kong + 2 year JD in U.S.


So I just graduated from a US college but am on my way back to my hometown, Hong Kong, to complete a JD. My hope is that upon finishing that JD, I will come back to the U.S. and do a 2-year JD.

Will having the 2-year JD from the U.S. put me at a disadvantage in terms of potential job offers compared to other U.S. 3-year JD holders?
