I currently reside in the Middle East, and in the 2nd year of my British law degree. I am considering qualifying as an NY attorney, but I would like to know the scope of opportunities for international graduates in terms of applying for a summer associate program. I am aware that the hiring for these programs are primarily done through law schools in the US, but is an application by an international student at all taken into consideration? Personally, I have undertaken over 12 legal clerkships in the Middle East, all of which were undertaken in top US and British law firms, would this experience be sufficient?
Any help would be appreciated.
Over the Easter break
