Does LEI have a lawyer exchange program?

One of the benefits of LEI is forming a close relationship with other members. Some members have maximized this relationship by sending employees to other member firms to gain valuable experience in other parts of the world and fill staffing needs. Given the unique nature of each country’s travel and immigration laws, we recommend that members decide how to conduct this type of endeavor by contacting their local government and legal counsel.
