Career Clinic: Are my civil-law credentials worth the paper they're printed on?
I am an Italian attorney with almost 2 years post-qualification experience. I took the usual Italian route of studying all-round civil and commercial law. Eighteen months ago I took an interesting non-attorney job on a project in Latvia, which has now come to an end. I'm now considering to appling for a position abroad (i.e. Russia, Dubai or similar) but it seems that every offer is addressed to common lawyers (if not UK/US JDs only). Italian law firms abroad are practically non-existent and I would like to avoid returning home.
