Hi, I'm currently studying law in Hong Kong, but deciding if: A) I should stay and complete the two years training contract (to obtain the qualification) and then apply for US JD or instead, B) leave with only the schooling and pursue a US JD immediately.

1. Basically, if I embark on the JD, and later permanently reside in the US, would holding a foreign license (qualification) be any advantage in the US job market?

2. Have the majority on this site who've applied for JD or LLM's all qualified in their home countries?

Thank you for all your comments.
