Which specialization is the best to work abroad ?Watch this thread
I am currently completing a double degree in english law and french law (LLB-Master 1). Then I want to study in a business school in France and get a BA.
I would like to work abroad in the future (Middle east - South east Asia especially but I remain open to other places). However, I do not know which specialization could help me to achieve this aim: M&A, HR manager, compliance officer ... ?
Thank you for your help.
Not really I looking for jobs relating to both "business" and law such as financial compliance, HR management, M&A.
I only speak a bit of arabic. Do you think that I muet speak these languages to work there ?
Thank you for your answer.
By the way, do you know any areas in which it would possible to work abroad at the beginning of my career ?
Thanks again for your answer.
In these fields you are generally advising on English law or New York law contracts, even if the contract has absolutely nothing to do with England or the US.
I imagine it is more difficult to move around in an area like HR and employment law, since you cannot choose an international law for HR matters, meaning it is a more localised field.
Only asked where this is in the legal careers section - probably needs moving to the central careers page if that's the case.
No you don't necessarily need the language for places like Dubai or Singapore. But in other places it is far more of a requirement, particularly seen in places like Japan and mainland China.
Unfortunately given that broadness it is more difficult to give you an accurate picture on this. I've known people in all of those areas to move abroad to work in places you have mentioned. But generally they have worked in the U.K. for one company for a fair amount of time and then had an internal secondment to another country.

So you get roughly the same salary as you would in the largest office. You'd obviously pay less tax but would probably have higher living expenses too.
If you are working for a local firm, salaries would be determined by local market conditions and would be much lower.
