Becoming a Lawyer in the US with my UK law degree?


zigglr

Hi all,

I will be completing my LLB law degree in the UK soon, and I am interested in doing either the LLM or JD in the US. After this, will it be difficult for me to gain a work visa in the US? I heard that after the LLM / JD I will be allowed to work in the US for 1 year, is this true?

Thanks
