Ukrainian lawyers, mostly women, are reaching out to legal recruiters in the U.K. seeking work—a very early-days phenomenon that recruiters expect to accelerate over the next few weeks.

However, big challenges remain around immigration and a string of local dangers, as war continues to ravage chunks of Ukraine.
