Most law schools in the US require applicants to have bachelor's degrees (used here and throughout the question to refer to a typically 4 year college degree) - usually on topics related to law such as English, Political Science, or Philosophy. I'm a US citizen who has attended some US college part-time. I'm considering pursuing a bachelor's degree in law in Spain - a 4/5 year program that provides basic legal training for those hoping to become lawyers in Spain (further specialization is typically required before becoming an attorney). If I obtain a bachelor's in law in Spain, will that be equitable with a bachelor's from a US institution for meeting the requirements of law schools in the United States? In two parts:
- Will a foreign bachelor's meet the hard requirement?
- Will a foreign bachelor's be "looked down upon" or considered "less than" a US degree?
Let me know if the Law Stack Exchange is more appropriate for this question, I wasn't sure.
