Let's stop all this pointless bickering. With the new training regime reforms to be implemented in 2023, they're raising the bar across the board for both overseas and local grads. And the fact that they're extending the TC period from 6 months to 1 year shows increasing emphasis on producing practice ready NQs, which is a step in the right direction.

The longer period will also weed out those who are half-hearted and not genuinely inclined to practise law. Nothing wrong with that btw since many law grads in oversaturated jurisdictions like Australia and the UK also don't practice law.
