Hello,

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.

In the legal sector, it is quite straightforward to work in the Middle East or Asia if you are a private sector lawyer who trained in London / Hong Kong / Singapore, and have experience in cross-border mergers and acquisitions or international arbitration.

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.

Would a lawyer get a higher salary in the UK or Dubai?

Dont know. Suspect you will earn slightly more in the U.K. but will have a higher disposable income in Dubai.

Maybe you are correct. However, in the UK most of your money goes into paying tax. I don't think this is the case in Dubai.

If you are working for an international firm, salaries tend to be pegged to London (for UK firms) or the US for US firms.

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.
