I am fascinated by International law, mainly corporate. But can Indian lawyers work on US/UK cases and if so, does this only happen at big firms. Also, what is the best way to become a qualified corporate lawyer at a big firm.

HI Love,

The short and the sweet answer to your question is that yes an Indian Advocate can practice a case in not just US or UK but in to all the countries, provided the rules and regulations of such countries bar councils are met. Please go through the underneath message in order to know more in details.

It is good to know that the target you have set is so high that even if you don't reach there, I am sure you would surely do something different and better than the others for sure. However I wish that you achieve your target and your dream to become an international qualified lawyer fulfill.

Well to begin with I am sure you know that every country has their own constitution and therefore have their own laws which may or may not be similar to some other country. Along with laws, the Bar Councils and the Law Regulation Societies are also different and the rules to practice before the courts are also different from country to country.

For example in United Kingdom, the Bar Council is known as the Law Society and Solicitor Regulation Authority. Now in order to practice before the English court an Indian Advocate will have to appear for a Written Examination and thereafter if they pass the Law Society will issue a Certificate which will be equal-ant to Indian Licence to practice. Again in UK there are two things an Indian advocate can do is that either become a Solicitor or become a Barrister, now the difference is huge between these two. In UK Barristers are only allowed to practice before the court and solicitors are only allowed to consult the client and prepare his case and does all the paper work related to the case. So Solicitors cant practice before the court in UK.

Similarly in USA too, an Indian Advocate will have to give a written exam in order to practice in any US Court. However in USA there is no distinct categories such as in UK.

Further to your question, Its is possible for an Indian Advocate to practice any where in the world provided he/she follows the rules and regulations of that particular country in order to practice before the court as an Advocate.

I hope the answer is satisfactory and will lead to your conclusion and will help you take the right decision for your career path.

Thanks
