What fields of law interest you? Law related to import / export might yield some work. Cross border patents, licenses, etc.

Might check with the energy companies about land acquisition / mineral rights work if you have some background in that realm.
Mineral right law is very different between Europe and the US. Even within the US, the laws are not uniform. In Montana, mineral rights are often severed from the surface rights as great-grandpa usually sold them in the Great Depression to save the surface farm. Also, individual rights such as force-pooling or rig spacing differs from state to state. In the East, like PA, the surface right owners usually have the mineral rights but they often get a much smaller share as the number of owners in a section is much greater than in the West.

In Europe, the state usually owns all minerals and the surface owners usually get pennies on the Euro for surface disturbance.

I would recommend import/export law. I don't know of many in Montana practicing it.

I was wondering why Montana? And from the UK? Have you ever been to Montana before?

Environmental Law is gaining a lot of ground here, on both sides of the spectrum. Lots of lawyers are doing that nowadays though.

Hi everyone,

It's been quite a few years, how time flies! Thanks to everyone who commented!

Update is I have yet to move to Montana, but it's definitely on the horizon for 2015. Work-wise I graduated in Law last year, but don't wish to practice - I'm hoping to go into teaching!

I chose Montana because my fiance lives there and I've fallen for the place too. I'm very big on the outdoors lifestyle - so doing things like hiking, fishing (never done it before, but I cant wait to try), camping, wildlife and just nature. Montana has plenty of that and the slower pace of life will be good.

Thanks again everyone...she says 2 years later

Just an update, I'm finally living here in Billings Montana. All is going well since being here over 1 month now.

The only racial issue I had was at the VFW (a veterans bar my husband is a member of) where several individuals (mainly senior) apparently didn't appreciate my being there. However, they were swiftly told to leave and I danced the night away with the elderly veterans - they were so awesome!

I have also seen many black persons, although we are a minority this doesn't mean people are nasty. In fact, everyone is lovely!

Thanks!

Welcome!
I live "near Billings", as my craigslist ads always say. Actually about 5 miles East of the Heights.
