You donít need a UK qualification to work in the UK. The Aussies/Kiwis get a job, move to London, and only then take the QLTS (would be the SQE now).

I'm the poster of post #11992. I was actually referring to the SQE. I was calculating the costs and I think it's around $20k thereabouts. I'm just wondering whether is it really useful or would learning business mandarin be better for career options. Any thoughts on that? Thanks in advance!

QLTS is extremely hard if your degree is not from uk.
Thatís why only so few people make it.

Will having E&W solicitors' qualification advantage you for UK firms? Or they don't care and are willing to sponsor you for the QLTS?

Genuine question - which Big 4 has the best culture and benefits? Things like pantry, phone allowance, taxi allowance, taking sick leave, treatment of non-equity partners etc.

Default Genuine question from liti assoc

Given that there is little job security in law nowadays, and with the constant threat of an onslaught of South Asian professionals courtesy of the CECA agreement, would you say to a junior liti associate at the crossroads that a viable career progression is venturing into local politics given our relatively high politician salaries?

Any advice in burnishing my CV for pivoting into a lucrative political post if one does not want to try for partner at a firm? Do some pro bono work at the grassroots level?

I think minister Sham and Pritam are excellent examples where lawyers have crossed over into politics with amazing career stability, satisfaction, and remuneration (Pritam's $385,000 package excludes his own law job and is far greater than lawyers at his PQE).

dont be silly. law is one of the industries best protected from ceca. we will probably be competing with ang moh firms first before ceca.

incidentally, my prediction is full liberalization of the legal sector to foreign law firms within this decade, and most of the big4 and large local firms absorbed by international firms.
