American Lawyer in Poland

I was wondering if anyone could tell me what an American Lawyer needs to do to be able to practice in Poland. I know there are many American firms in Poland, but is there market for a lawyer in a small town somewhere? What must I do to be able to practice law in Poland?

Thank you,

J. Piotr

Although I have no expertise in the field of law, common sense tells me you should ask the firm that you might possibly be working with....I don't know if there's a demand for English Lawyers in Poland's smaller communities, but my guess is, since they are a part of the EU, it couldn't hurt.....as long as you can communicate in Polish (highly recommended if you plan to live in Poland), I think an English speaking practice could be quite lucrative! Good luck! :)

As if that wasn't obvious enough. Ranj just had to make sure the man is one of those rare lawyers with a brain! :)

The laws in Poland are still murky. People don't practice suing over anything - yet. Maybe you want to start a trend? It could be quite helpful to many unjustly hurt people (for any reason) who don't even think about getting a lawyer...

I have a friend who is Polish, and is working as a lawyer for an American investment Company in Warsaw, where they practise both legal systems. Maybe going down this avenue would be suitable for yourself.
