Mobility of the Legal Profession

– Qualification and Practice in MultiJurisdictions

 

With much greater ease of travel and vast improvements in instant communication, there is both a greater facility for and sometimes a need for practice in more than one jurisdiction.

 

How one looks at that issue historically has coloured attitudes, but things can and do change.

 

I recently participated in the 2015 Commonwealth Law Conference seminar in Glasgow, Scotland, entitled as above.

 

I, Joseph B Daudu of Nigeria and Thomas Ford of Canada, presented papers reflective of the position in our respective jurisdictions.

 

Each gave something of a history of the issue their jurisdiction(s) and talked of proposals for the future.
