    To be able to compete in the US legal labour market, an undergrad degree, then a JD and then a state bar exam.

    But many English lawyers who work in commercial law will just become qualified here and then transfer with their firm and work as an English qualified lawyer in their US office(s), taking a state bar exam if needed (usually if they are staying there long term).

    This level of initiative is probably not what those sorts of firms are after.
