Lol salty Rodyk lawyer spotted. Nobody discusses Rodyk in the same level as Big4. There are better contenders to the "Big 5" position.

Heard that Baker raised their starting pay to $8K recently. Anyone can confirm?

Yeah why not if law is not for you? Better than wasting the next 4 years of your life getting a specialised degree and taking the bar while full well knowning that you don't intend to be a lawyer.

Not all law firms are the same though - try interning at some of the smaller law firms to see if they suit you.

It is also not too late to pull up to a 2:1 and get into a Big 4 if that is what you want (but it doesn't sound like it is).

As you grow older you realise you don't really have to answer to anyone except yourself (and God if you are religious). Law students/lawyers are a gossipy bunch but see it as just that - gossip by small-minded people with nothing better to do. I am happier the less I interact with my "learned friends" who aren't actually friends I can go to when I am in a pinch

Salty non Big 4 non Rodyk lawyer spotted trying to squeeze his firm into the top 5

Just look at all Rodyk's rankings in Chambers and Legal 500 in the practice areas that matter

Ur probably a salty Wong & Leow or Thio Su Mein & Partners lawyer trying to edge his firm into the big boys LOLLLLLL

Lol even within the Big4, some of my partners use the “Big 3” now.

I felt second hand embarrassment during part B when we did introductions and the JLV kids had to be all “I’m training at (drumroll) withers / dentons”. Best is when the senior practitioner who’s teaching the course is like smlj what firm u talking.

Who cares big5 or big4, what’s in a name. At the end of the day ask yourself - do the offshores and the likes of A&O, Jones Day, CC, etc routinely hire or expressly only want to hire from your non big 4 firm? NOPE. Delulu.

Gosh. Will all these sad losers who pride their worth on the size of their law firms get out of here and carry on your puerile arguments at the playground?

There are people who earnestly want to find out more about the industry, so don't stain this thread with your vulgar conversations.

To that silly poster who kept rambling about how great his Harvard AB was, look at the latest QS world ranking 2022.

Look where Columbia is. Look where NUS is. Look where Oxbridge is.

Thank you very much.
