    I don't know, my guess would be a solicitor for a firm that has lots of overseas offices. But you shouldn't really go into law with the expectation that you will do lots of traveling, the chances are you won't.

    It's very hard to get travelling opportunities, even at big firms, when you're very junior. The only way to really travel frequently is if you happen to work in a department that does a lot of work for overseas projects and there is a business need of your client that requires you to fly out frequently. When you get more senior, and especially if you work in areas of law that involve huge cross-border elements, you end up travelling a great, great deal.

    At junior level, right down to trainee level, you only really get to travel for work internationally if you manage to get a secondment.

    Travelling on business isn't much fun. You fly in, you have a meeting or a series of meetings, you might have a night in a hotel and you fly out again.

    If you have to ask this kind of question seriously, you need to reconsider whether or not you have a vocation in law tbh...

    This sounds harsh but C'est la vie. C'est la vie!!
