Hi everyone, I'm a third year student at one of the local universities and I've accepted a TC with the SG office of a MC firm. I'm interested in corporate m&a practice, and I'm thinking of reneging on my TC offer to pursue a JD at Harvard/Columbia/Stanford. The long term goal is to practice in New York or San Francisco, and eventually transition back to SG as a partner in a US firm or as in house legal counsel to a MNC.

I'm only aware of one senior who is pursuing a JD at Harvard after completing his NUS LLB, but he's heading for litigation and/or arbitration practice in the US.

Would a JD be worth it for corporate m&a practice?
