Re: Any chance to work for firm in Canada w/ a U.S. law degree? In re Greedy September 25, 2008 09:59 am
You can get called to a Canadian bar as a U.S. lawyer - many have. The downside is that you'll have to jump through a lot of hoops (e.g., likely take more school, clerk for a period of time, pass an exam, etc.) See this link for details:

As for working for a U.S. firm in Canada doing U.S. law, there are only a small handful of U.S. firms that have offices in Canada (e.g., Dorsey & Whitney, Shearman). The vast bulk of work would be corporate & securities (M&A, cap markets, etc.). Plus, I imagine getting a position at those firms is highly competitive. New York is flooded with top Canadian law grads who would be probably love to go back to Canada to get U.S. pay in Toronto.
