LLM, JD or LPC?


I have completed my LLB (University of London External program) and I am an international student. I do not want to work in my country as there are more opportunities abroad. I have done two internships though and have no real work experience as I have just finished college.

Should I go for the JD in America or Australia? Or is JD not the right path?
Should I go for my LPC in UK? Will i get a training contract?
Or should i do my LLM? USA, Australia or UK?

Please help as this I am uncertain what to pursue and on that basis I could decide my country as my main goal is to get a good job.

So many unknowns about you to guide you. Don't know if you can live permanently in the US for example without any sort of sponsorship. If you can, then a JD or an accelerated JD might be an option. A LLM in the US is virtually worthless unless you have some previous experience.

I have an LLM from a great school in the US and it was VERY difficult to find a job. I had great previous legal experience. It has been a very difficult battle to find work. The best decision I made was going to the best school I could get into whether I got financial support or not from that school. Pedigree of the school is one of the best things to at least get an employer to look at your resume.
