Foreign Lawyers Seeking to Practice in U.S. Face Roadblocks

Transnational lawyers have their own set of issues. Many foreign-educated attorneys attempt to land jobs in the U.S. each year and face great challenges in doing so.

"The number of foreign lawyers working in U.S. law firms has multiplied since the mid-1990s," writes Northwestern University law professor Carole Silver in her paper "The Case of the Foreign Lawyer: Internationalizing the U.S. Legal Profession."

"Foreign lawyers occupy two basic roles in the large U.S. law firms that traditionally have been involved in the international market for legal services: One group is comprised of lawyers who act as substitutes for U.S. lawyers, and another group is comprised of lawyers who are hired for their foreign expertise."
