Legal professional on a lookout in Poland

22 Mar 2017 #1
Hi (all),
I am an Indian law graduate with work experience of 2 yrs with a globally well known LPO (E-Discovery Process) . I am planning to change my field of work a bit and is open to any field of work. i am not yet ready to give nay bar exams abroad as i am short of funds and if things work out will definitely do so.I am from a very conservative family so will not be able to shell out much.i am looking forward to doing an MBA in International business or any other suggestions that could be a good course with legal degree/lpo background.

I have 4 Major concerns right now.
1. What is the scope of getting a job post MBA.
2. Is there some other field where my Legal knowledge comes to play and i can have a upper hand.
3. How hard could my survival/growth be.
4. Any suggestions/inputs are welcomed.

Looking forward to have valuable inputs from every one out there.
Thanks in advance.

Pretty much means that you can cross Poland off the list of places you should be looking, as well as all the other former communist countries of the EU, and probably the southern European countries, too. I can't think of a single country in this group that does not have a glut of law-school graduates and relatively inexperienced MBAs. Nor are any of them a suitable place for a clueless young person to figure out what to do with their life.

So, as far as getting a good job is concerned, that is pretty much out of the question. There is no demand for your qualifications, and any job you might find would be very poorly paid and will give you little, if any, saleable experience. As for improving your qualifications, the best place to do that is India, unless you can afford to go to a very good school in an English-speaking country.

I hate to say it, but studying law is a poor investment unless you have close relatives or very close connections in the legal field, preferably who own their own practice. It's a very tough field for outsiders to break into, unless they are top students from top schools, and even then.

And MBAs are not worth much either unless you have lots of prior experience or are a top student at a top school, and even then.

In terms of long-term goals, it would be worth considering getting a degree in a field that requires lots of advanced applied mathematics, like petroleum engineering, geological engineering, biomedical engineering, econometrics (not economics), financial engineering, financial mathematics (not finance), or actuarial sciences. These are the fields with stellar job prospects, We live in a technocracy, and people who can do high-level quantitative analysis are in demand.

A further bonus is that, with a technical degree, your law degree will become useful, as you will be able to enter one of the few fields of law in that is easily accessible to outsiders: patent and intellectual property law.

Any chances on Biotechnology? Is it a demanded sector in Poland?

In Poland, not particularly. Try the richer countries of western Europe or the English speaking countries. Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Denmark, Sweden, Norway, the Netherlands, Belgium, France, the UK, Ireland, the US, Canada, Australia and New Zealand. You might try South Korea, Japan and Singapore, too. Wages in Poland would be too low to make it an attractive option.

Also, do not rely on recruiters or internet sites to find good jobs. The best jobs are advertised solely by word of mouth, face to face in the real world. Recruiters and internet sites get the table scraps. So build up and exploit your network of real world contacts, especially senior professionals in the field and those that have worked in richer countries.
