Working in Scotland with Irish law degree
Jan 4th, 2010 at 2:15pm
I have an LL.B. which I completed in Dublin and I then went on to complete a masters at the University of Edinburgh studying International Economic law and International Criminal law. Since then I have worked as a legal research assistant for the Irish judiciary and as a private legal research assistant. I am keen to move to Edinburgh at some point in the future. I don't necessarily want to practice as a solicitor or an advocate, but I would be interested in in-house work or something in the public service. Is my best option to qualify in Ireland first and then re-qualify in Scotland? For that sort of work, would I definitely need to re-qualify or would my Irish qualifications suffice? Finally, I understand the process of re-qualifying as a solicitor in Scotland, but is it possible to re-qualify as a Scottish advocate, if I were to qualify as a barrister in Ireland?
Any advice or general thoughts would be much appreciated.
