I'm a UK student, starting my degree in September. I've applied to universities in both the UK and US and I don't yet know where I'll be going, but I've started looking into going into law for post-grad. (I'll be doing languages if I end up in the UK, don't know for sure what my major would be in the US)
To practise law in the US I know that you need a graduate degree (JD), and I wondered whether or not this would be the equivilant of a Law degree or GDL in the UK (ie if I were to take this, would I be able to take the bar exam in the UK without needing any other qualifications)? I know that you can't qualify in the US with a UK Law degree or law conversion.
Secondly, I know that you can also take the JD in Canada and Australia. Would these qualify you to take the bar in the UK or US?
Does anyone have any knowledge and/or experience on any of this? Or anything else that could help?
