    The US has a whole different system so I doubt you can without a conversion course of some sort. These might also be helpful:

    The short answer is yes, but that's generally limited to commonwealth countries. Having said that, pretty much every other country requires additional exams and call to their national Bar before you have rights of audience in local courts.
    A lot of English barristers do go overseas because English law is very much respected, although a lot of that work is international arbitration and mediation.
