please start a new forum and leave this forum to feed the trolls - was actually a good idea to have this forum to level the playing field in a cut throat industry like law

You do not need to sit for the LLM to sit for the NY Bar.
That is additional cost and a complete waste of time.
A NUS law degree is good enough to sit for the New York bar.
Whether you pass the NY Bar or not is a separate matter that boils down to aptitude.
Clearly the LLM from Columbia or NYU has no value to practice unless your first degree is really bad from a university rank beyond rank number 300 in the world that any reasonable American law firm will not recognize.

For the benefit of all juniors:

Do not waste time applying/asking your professors or law firm partners to write references for your application to Harvard, or Oxbridge LLMs (BCL) if you are clearly not a summa cum laude or first class honours.

In very rare situations, NUS 2:1 or SMU magna have been accepted before but these people are in the top 6-7% with one or more prizes or deanís list. In other words they fall marginally outside the top 5% threshold but clearly within top 10%.

Oxbridge only admits the top and top is not an understatement.

I wonder how did this forum degen until such a state. I've been a lurker here since 2014. Is it the same few losers going on and on about KCL, fervent, ceca and other racist and sexist comments etc.?

Even worse than the SIM UOL thread which we all assume would be full of rubbish ..

Pretty reflective of the state of the industry really, and the quality of the juniors we see in practice nowadays. Can't take long hours, entitled, low EQ, arrogant, but worse sin is that quality of research and drafting not impressive at all. Really supply side problem.

The young students/people today have an entitlement mentality.

I mean in the past you would agree that if classmate A is better means he/she is better.
Today, ppl are not contended.
If you didnít study hard in law school, then why want to blame others for your misfortune?
Then there is so much jealousy going on.
People put in the effort to study hard consistently and thatís why they are top for a reason.

Tech big deal or not is none of our concern. If you love tech so much, you are free to go do tech and fight it out to get a FAANG spot with 10000 + other CS graduates and whoever else took a codemonkey course.

We are happy that law practice is still a protected industry (for now) so our salaries are artificially inflated.

This is a lawyer forum, so obviously we will discuss lawyer related stuff.
