Career Clinic: Will relocating Down Under drag my law career south?
I am about to finish my LLB (Hons) Business Law degree at a British university but am thinking of relocating to Australia and starting my legal career there. (I know that I will have to undergo further examinations in Australian Constitutional Law and the LPC.) I am a bit worried because it appears that I might be successful in getting a training contract in the UK so I do not want to make the wrong decision. I also know that it is possible to relocate to Oz after I have done my training contract in the UK. However, I fear that starting my legal career in the UK will make it more difficult for me to take the risk and leave the country for a better outdoor life in Australia. Shall I go now or later?
