Stringent qualification requirements for UK legal consultants in South Korea
in South Korea
Trade barrier summary
Overseas law firms are unable to acquire the right level of consultant expertise to work in South Korea. The country insists on 3 years' post-qualification experience (PQE), one of which should be spent abroad.
South Korean lawyers who pass the qualified lawyers transfer scheme could also be adversely affected by the 3-year requirement if they have not spent time in the UK.
