Hii
So I'm planning on going to law school since I absolutely love law and I am so interested in ,so I checked few universities and their courses and actually a lot of them have a year abroad which I didn't know about but I heard that, at the end when you officially finish law school with a year abroad e.g. in USA,you are not able to become a lawyer in that country that you went for your year abroad.
Is that true? and if it is then what's the point of studying abroad if I can't become a lawyer in that country?
(P.S I won't be able to go to Spain,France or Germany for year abroad since I don't study any of these languages and the unis that I checked do require from you to have A level in specific language,just thought to put this out there just in case)

Idk. Just a cool thing to do I guess? There’s no particular reason why you’d have to go abroad

Mostly it's to piss about and have a laugh. For example, most year abroad in the US won't even teach academic law which is a postgrad course in the US. You will just do the general education tosh in history and literature, and whatever.

The year abroads in France and Germany can be more interesting if you're on a dual-qualification course which will allow you to practise in both jurisdictions. I would advise you to look into this further if this is something that interests you. NB many of the year abroads to France and Germany do not confer a dual-qualification; they're like the US one where you just piss about.

Warwick lets you go to Germany. https://warwick.ac.uk/fac/soc/law/ap...aduate/m108/#1

Bristol has a Continental Europe programme. http://www.bristol.ac.uk/study/under...lb-law-europe/ There are some places, e.g. Belgian and Dutch schools, which teach in English. See here http://www.bristol.ac.uk/global-oppo...abroad/search/

Liverpool has some in Europe, which also don't depend on competency in a second language. https://www.liverpool.ac.uk/study-ab...tbound/search/
