Stetson University’s law school in Gulfport, Florida, is also listed among the best places for foreign attorneys from South America, offering a location with fellow students and a large community from the region.

JR Swanegan, Stetson’s director of international programs, described career development seminars and workshops that focus on networking and interviewing skills, and a career development team on the law school campus that helps students with “honing their resumes and cover letters in ways that attract international and U.S. employers.”
