Lawyers Weekly Podcast Network

Two Major, Lindsay & Africa consultants join up to look at the opportunities for Australian-qualified lawyers in the New York legal market on the latest episode of The Lawyers Weekly Show. Our host, Lawyers Weekly journalist Lara Bullock, is joined by Hong Kong-based legal search consultant Nathan Peart and Sydney-based researcher Mikaela Orme of Major, Lindsey & Africa. Mr. Peart and Ms. Orme explain how the E-3 Visa has made it a lot easier for Australian citizens to be able to work in America and that New York firms are increasingly looking at Aussie lawyers as potential candidates now that the process has been made simpler. While the work load is often hard, the remuneration and relocation packages offered by firms are often generous, and the support given to foreign lawyers preparing to sit the New York Bar exam has made it less daunting than it once was.
