Most people who studied law did so because of the following reasons:

If high tier UK law school or NUS or SMU, its because they are unimaginative, unambitious and are not the hustling or entrepreneurial type.

Let's face it most lawyers don't want to stray off the well trodden path and want everything charted out for them. This profession self selects for people with a more conservative bent, who just want to put their heads down to work

The high flyers in law will likely be high flyers in other fields too if they had the inclination for it. the mediocre people in law will also be mediocre even if they do something else

I'm with this guy.
I'm mediocre and pretty happy to stay mediocre. Not much interested in being a high flyer either, doesn't really matter what i do.

Go consulting or IB. $_$ more dough than Singapore law practitioners. LLMs are a waste of money. The returns are too uncertain, no one cares whether you can write a dissetation. Do something useful like an MBA

UK. Go and earn that pound. One day when the local grads have slogged out enough PQE at a reputable Singapore firm, they may (if the stars align) be hired in an international office where you outrank them.

If you come back to Singapore you will be subject to bad odds. This is because the Singapore system is skewed towards local grads. You will have to do Part A, which has an unreasonably high fail rate compared to Part B.

Singaporean NQ in UK here, more or less accurate.
