Hi everyone! I am a qualified Indian attorney with two years of work experience in IPR Law firms and I am currently in the UK, due to complete my LLM from a Russell Group Uni (Durham) in September. Do you think my current credentials and experience puts me in a favourable position to apply for paralegal jobs in the UK before I become a solicitor formally?

If it helps, I can stay here till March after which I will need a UK sponsor.
Basically, the plan in theory is to get a paralegal job till at least March so as to manage finances and gain experience and later sit for the QLTS to formally qualify as a solicitor in England and Wales.
Any help/suggestion/advice as to how this might work is GREATLY appreciated!
Please let me know if there's anything more that might help. Cheers!

No idea. I think you just need to speak to firms or recruiters.
Ideally they like to see the LPC so you are non standard, but they do take graduates.
Is your LLB from the UK as well?
