    As the title says, I am considering beginning a career in law. I would like for it to be in Ireland, but I haven't decided yet whether in the Republic of Ireland or in NI.

    Where are there better chances to find employment after graduation and after completing the training to be a solicitor/barrister: in Ireland or Northern Ireland?

    Is it common for lawyers from NI to work in Ireland and vice versa?

    From what I can tell, NI seems like a safer bet, because who is selected to become solicitors/barristers depends on an entrance exam, whereas in Ireland you are dependent on securing a training contract to become a solicitor. This system also restricts the number of newly qualified solicitors and barristers to 160, which should limit competition, even if fully qualified solicitors from Ireland and the UK can easily transfer to NI.
