Yeah exactly. Comment about being able to take care of health is probably from a poster that works from 10am-5pm, with 2h lunch break everyday

Worth or not. Sacrificing youth, health, and happiness for money.

Paper qualifications say little about your competence: for legal practice, and for any other industry.

I've seen some really dumb people with smart credentials, and some really smart people with plebian credentials. In fact the school you come from means little. And I say this from my Ivory tower - I consider myself fortunate.

Please don't ever, ever cast aspersions on others and say someone from a delisted school got in by connections or looks. This reeks of your sense of entitlement, i.e. someone from a delisted school is in a big firm. I, hailing from my "Ivory tower", cannot get in. Therefore, that person got in through matters not related to competence. It is neither nice nor welcome.

Let me adopt some trainee speak for you:

Inter alia, people need to grow up and stop comparing pieces of paper. This is nugatory. The posts above raise the rebuttable presumption that this forum is full of trainee trolls.

This forum is for lawyers, not trainees. Please start a Trainee Salary Forum for your needs. Oh, and please print the contract precedents for me.

Glad to see. As an incoming trainee at an firm with lao jiao mentalities (or atleast perceived to be) this is some nice confirmation bias.

These posts are getting more outrageous.
If youíre a junior and you hate your seniors, instead of whining, you could always undermine them by giving them a series of thrash work and leaving them for dead.

If youíre a fch and have no job, then do something else. Work your way up, be in a position where you control a huge legal budget and can remove law firms on your retainer.

If youíre a third tier individual who depended on parentsí connections or looks, then continue using it... whatís the problem. Use until one day you cannot use anymore...

Resigning yourself to fate and allowing people to run all over you is pretty stupid

To juniors out there- youíre more capable than you think.

Law firms operate on a culture of fear.
They tell you they will not sign off your tc, threaten you with this and that, etc...

In the past as a junior myself we were all afraid.

But I think now the biggest problem was myself and my peers when we were juniors.

People will always be jealous of someone who get fch when they are only a 2:2. Similarly people will always be jealous of someone who has parental connections while they do not have. An ugly person will always be jealous of a good looking person. A half past six senior will claim that his/her juniors are shitty to be able to last one more year in practice.

Have seen all of those.

We should have a heart for our juniors - they are graduating in a time full of uncertainty in an economic recession, in an industry with a huge glut. The average tech graduate also outearns them without having to take an extra 1 yr to take the bar and do a traineeship and has way better career prospects. Not to mention in 2023 they will be made to do a traineeship (i.e exploited for crap pay) for 1 yr instead of 6 months.

Don't be like the boomers - "I got success liao so screw everyone after me"
