Is it common in the local context? For a law undergrad in NUS to pivot towards M&A in a bank?
Most people group lawyers into one category but from my experience, they are a very diverse bunch with varying capabilities. There are those whose English is slightly better than the average Singaporeans so they do law.

But to really excel, one needs more than that. Law needs strong analytic skills. Those that are really bright possess that. They are not only just good in the law, they are good in other disciplines. Law studies just a platform for them to train their mind.

A lot of entrepreneurs and people in high finance or tech have law degrees.
