Bar of England and Wales added to U.S. Bar memberships

Admission to the Bar of England and Wales as a Solicitor (non-practicing) was received following successful completion of the Qualified Lawyers Transfer Test.

Michael H. Cohen has been admitted to the Bar of England and Wales as a Solicitor (non-practicing), adding to Bar membership in four U.S. states.

This was a natural extension of teaching UK law in the Bahamas, with an additional focus on international law, and having association with many UK nationals in the community.

The new credential bring greater unity and coherence to a law practice rapidly spanning national boundaries.

The one downside is that this singular addition to the re-unification of the common law will make it more difficult henceforth to reference England and and the U.S. being "two countries being separated by a common language" (though the statement was made by no less an authority than Charlie Rose, and a Google search for "blimey" brought up reference to the "English-to-American Dictionary").
