You could be a potential undergraduate who have to serve NS in Singapore. Anyway the advice is the same no matter why you will graduate only 6 years later.

The truth is the oversupply has NOT PEAKED yet. The growing number of law fresh graduate is only going to peak in 2017-2019. The recent slump in economy made things worse as the bigger firms are cutting down on Practice Trainee places and retention as associates. I have heard of some spillover effect , where some law graduates were forced to take a gap year in their qualification route ( meaning choose to fight for 2018 places when most in that batch is doing 2017) . Not sure how severe is the spillover. My take is that 6 years is probably not enough for the peak to pass. I think 10 is a safer bet.

I hope other aspects of the study of the law may interest you sufficiently . Otherwise you should not go near a law degree.
