Won't Quebec lawyers be as useless in a North American Union as Louisiana lawyers are in the United States?

Yeah. Minus the common currency.

I have a full fledged common law degree too.

I haven't done "Quebec law" in years.




Not to mention that I've been looking forward to moving to Raleigh or Denver for years!

I think you are greatly over-estimating the freedom of movement in the American legal community.

Most states will only have the requirement of a bar exam for out of state lawyers if that lawyer a) currently practices in a state with similar laws and b) the lawyer's state also waives the bar exam for lawyers from the state. Louisiana fails both requirements so Louisiana lawyers, even those that exclusively practice federal law in Louisiana, can't change states without retaking the bar. Quebec would be in the same situation.

The big states with the juiciest legal markets (ie New York, California, Texas, and Virginia) require everyone to retake the bar exam.

All that having a common law degree might get you is the opportunity to sit for the bar exam and that's assuming it's a JD, because I think New York is the only state that recognizes LLBs.

Trudeau will come to power and all this madness will end. He'll throw millions at the CBC again and we will all be watching Socialist TV about subsidized farming.

And another fun fact: a lot JAG lawyers are licensed in South Carolina because that is the easiest bar exam.

I look forward to more people enjoying Heartland. It's right behind Murdoch in terms of heart warming dramas.

People watch stuff like Heartland? My knowledge of Heartland comes from TV commercials watching Sens play Saturday nights: Young men and women in cowboy hats. The older men have mustaches and cowboy hats. And horses.

Always got the impression that Heartland was a show for teenage suburban girls who like horsies.
