Can please someone tell me what the job market for Junior Lawyers/Lawyers is in Malta at the moment?
1. Are there many young people that graduate from Law School and find it difficult to get a good job?
2. To become a lawyer in Malta, one needs to pass a dreaded Bar Exam, or the process is based only on registration with the local authority?
I am currently a Junior Lawyer in Romania. Passed the horrible Bar Exam in 2014 and I`ll take my final Bar Exam this autumn (after that I`ll be a full-rights Lawyer here). Currently I work in a local law firm. I also have a LL.M. in Business Law.
I have read that, in order to become a Lawyer in Malta, one needs to work as a Lawyer (in a law fIrm, I take it) for 3 years.
Taking into consideration all these aspects, could someone please tell me what wages I would need to settle for for those first 3 years and what the general perspective for this job is? Also, I believe following a postgrad course in Malta, focused on local laws would be helpful, but I do not know what the expenses for this would be or if there is any kind of funding available.
