True. The legal system of Nicaragua, like almost all other Latin American countries, is based on Civil Law, which dates back to Roman law. Anglo-Saxon countries, including the United States, base their legal systems on Common Law, which has a murkier origin in Anglo-Saxon tribal law. The main difference between these is that while Civil Law primarily concerns itself with legal codes (codified laws), the Common Law system places much more emphasis on the role of the judge and their past decisions. Two completely different systems.

I have a quick question
I'm from Dominican Republic, I'm getting my bachelor degree in Civil Engineering in less than a year.
I'm want to know if it will be valid in the US? If not, How can I make it valid?

You can not "make it valid". It's up to the employer what he makes of it. Pretty much like U.S. degrees.

JncBno, as Glucorious says it will be employers' decision whether they consider your degree sufficient for whatever jobs they are offering. It isn't a question of being "valid".

You can, though, have your credentials evaluated through companies like World Education Services or Educational Credential Evaluators (and I'm sure there are others that come recommended) which might help in a future job search. That will save employers some leg-work if they can evaluate the work you've done overseas by checking your resume.

I should imagine the top research universities in the UK (The Russell Group) are recognised throughout the world, and qualifications from them also recognised globally.

I'm a civil engineer, graduated from a University in Mexico which is ABET accredited (ABET is an organization here in the US that evaluates your education and most companies require that u have a bachelor's from an ABET accredited university), and even with 2+ years experience and a degree I just can't have a company to call me for at least an interview.
It's sad.

In this ****ty economy, most degrees from schools in the US are worthless except from the top schools and even that won't guarantee you a decent, living wage job. If I were considering a foreign degree, it'd be to increase my chances of finding long-term employment in the country I was studying in. If I wanted to work in the US, I'd study in the US and from a well known school if possible.

Even if foreigners come to US and get Masters, Ph.Ds, they will still be worthless in this job market.
