Ask A Legal Recruiter

I’m an LLM from a Ivy League school who just passed the NY bar and has years of corporate commercial law experience- how do I change all my “no”s to atleast a few “yes”s? Or is there just no chance?

Congrats on passing the bar. If you have language skills to leverage, and/or a firm has attorneys/does work in your native country, outreach to those individuals requesting informational meetings could get you a foot in.
