Yes I mean all this **** talk/bragging about schools resemble frogs in a well arguing over whose medula oblongata is bigger. Law is a sunset industry. Yes, the world needs lawyers. But the world does not need that many.

Let's be real. All this bickering shows that the market is saturated and long gone are the golden days. Ask any senior lawyer.

Go to tech oil finance or drop shipping. That's where the real money is, and money talks. Anyone worth a hoot could hire a better lawyer than you ever will be, regardless of what you say about his school

You are clearly ignorant. The university ranking shows it all. NUS Law > any other schools besides Oxbridge.

From anecdotal evidence, seems to be same as previous years, 60-70% pass rate (although it seems more ppl failed crim due to the "fail one qns fail the paper rule") before retakes, and then (I assume since results are not out) 99% after retakes.

I thought it was okay leh. Some questions were a bit WTF but overall the papers were doable.

I’d say about a third of the people in my social circle failed one paper at the first sitting. Common culprits this year are ACP, crim, wills.

Based on seniors’ experiences, most people who fail a paper just do the retakes, pass, and move on. It doesn’t seem like a huge deal.

Failing two papers or the retakes is probably a red flag though.

Most big US firms are giving craaaaazy bonuses right now s://abovethelaw.com/2021/03/special-bonus-tracker-2021/.

Work has been through the roof for them and they are throwing money at their associates to stop them from quitting due to burnout.

Be careful what you wish for salary wise.

But also, brb looking at doing a BARBRI course and becoming a US summer associate.

this forum should focus on SG lawyers' salaries and experiences.

not sure why everyone is always harping on about US pay - law is a graduate degree there, law graduates are often up to their ears in debt (both undergrad tuition and law school tuition), the US bar exam is closed book, and it is very common for people to be renting their own apartments in high COL places like NYC, Boston, SF *during* law school. given those costs (time costs & monetary expenses), their high salaries make sense. and many people don't survive very long in biglaw anyway

Because you can work for Gunderson or Latham in Singapore and get that same salary.
