United Kingdom (PRUnderground) July 27th, 2015

Getting a job in the law sector is tough enough as it is, but if you are an overseas qualified lawyer then it can be even more difficult to find a law job in the UK.

However, LAW Absolute has an excellent track record of working with top tier overseas qualified lawyers and paralegals and have placed many into great jobs.

Whilst lawyers that have qualified in the Commonwealth jurisdiction can find the transition to UK law fairly straightforward, others that have qualified outside of England and Wales may have to qualify under the Qualified Lawyers Transfer Scheme.

LAW Absolute are experts in placing overseas lawyers into permanent legal positions in the UK and to help their candidates with the transition they have compiled a number of points that overseas candidates should follow.

Before overseas lawyers come to the UK they should:

  • check that they have the right to work in the UK
  • bring all qualifying documentation
  • secure academic and employment references
  • send your CV to LAW Absolute

Then when you get to the UK, LAW Absolute say candidates should:

  • open a bank account
  • get a contact number
  • update CV with new contact details
