When I graduated from law school at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver, Canada, in 1972, I never imagined that I would end up practicing law in California and more recently in New York. I never thought that I would immigrate to the United States and continue practicing law in Canada as well. But I did. Nevertheless, today there are thousands of attorneys like me, graduates from law schools all over the world seeking to come to the United States or Canada to practice law. When they arrive, they encounter a difficult marketplace to enter for their services. The question is how to do it successfully.
