I am new to this forum. I find it very refreshing. It puts a smile on my face at the end of the day when I read the postings, especially the funny ones. I noticed you have written a lot about jobs. I have a question that hasn't quite been touched on. Here it is:
I am an attorney in the U.S. This means in addition to my bachelor's I have a masters level law degree. This is different from a Nigerian law degree which may be a bachelor's level degree. I don't have any degrees from Nigeria although I intend to earn a BL from the Nigerian Law School in the near future).
A fresh graduate attorney in the U.S. can make $100,000 a year, but I would like to contribute my human capital to Nigeria so I am looking for positions in Nigeria.
I found that a lot of companies are hiring expatriates, but with an engineering degree or a Medical degree you can pretty much work anywhere in the world. Obviously, for lawyers, on the other hand, employment is limited if you are coming into different country with a foreign law degree.
Does anyone know anyone who has been able to enter the Nigerian employment scene with a J.D. (an American law degree)? Does anyone know any companies in Nigeria looking to hire Nigerians expatriates with Juris Doctors. I am interested in Human Resources, legal consulting, international tax, contract drafting and analysis etc.
