Tbh grades not even determinative. Lots of 2.2 people became pre-eminent persons.

But at that time, 2.1s were very rare.

A 2.2 now is crap. Which time period are you looking at? People who got called 30 years ago? Plenty of top tier lawyers with 2.2.

Now (maybe a decade ago) if you got a 2.2 from NUS it's rubbish. This is because the grading system has changed.

not OP, but there's some truth in the OPs' suggestion that bakers is highly integrated - makes sense if you believe that they're the "World's Best Law Firm Brand". But I also hear that the people there generally "drink the kool-aid", so to speak.

All you people singing praises about NUS/SMU while ousting other schools is just like the demented and delusional Beow Tan.

Grow up, you lawyers to be and be just a bit more dignified and cultured (although admittedly quite difficult for sinkies to be in general).

A first class is the bare minimum today for international firms.
2:1 still a bit of hope. 2:2 no chance at all.

Why? NUS law in the past few years award 10% fch every year. Practically everyone else gets a 2:1. Only a small minority gets 2:2.

There is a glut. You connect the dots.

All these exclude connections. If you use connections, you may come from a degree mill and still be employed.

Connections doesn’t mean your parents must be rich.
Connection can be created on your own. Marry rich, friend rich etc

Absolutely untrue. Getting into international firms requires a 2:1 and making it though their (non-academic) gauntlet of interviews and tests.

There is no glut of lawyers globally. US firms are paying USD 50k sign on bonuses. Business is booming in London and Dubai. HK always needs lawyers who can read and write Mandarin (and who can put up with their shitty working conditions and COL).

Stop spreading bitterness.

Not OP. But the OP said 2:1 has some chance.
OP seems to be referring to SG lawyers aiming for the internationals.
Meaning NUS/SMU grads...
