Same as any other field of law la, don't submit irrelevant pleadings and don't make your assocs do purely SOPA related work (this type of work only helps the Partner achieve their billable target but doesn't teach much - especially if you always copy-paste only).

LOL I know you're trolling but Baker really isn't good in much in Singapore. Apart from their brand name, they don't have any field that they excel in.

Says a lot about our local firms when Baker is considered to have good brand name. In the UK, firms like DLA, Baker and Norton Rose are considered middling, non-prestigious firms. Not even silver circle and far from the most coveted firms for top law grads.

It's a pseudo-social science, which is more towards female inclinations. But it's also slightly more competitive and prestigious to enter than your run-of-the-mill arts/social science/business courses. Hence, it attracts the studious, nerdy girls from better JCs or who did better in A levels.

At the academic and junior practice level, law rewards being studious, meticulous, and putting your head down quietly and doing the work. Females excel in this because they are detail-oriented and fussy about minute things, and are very good at following pre-planned procedures and SOPs to the letter.

The more incisive question to ask is why you don't see females as top level litigators or many EPs. Aside from the obvious family burdens stereotype, at the senior level, the skillsets required for law are more towards the rainmaking size (schmoozing with clients) and seeing the big picture and problem solving in creative ways and being thick skinned (for litigation).
i felt the same way as a junior but even the partners could be quite fastidious about things. And it was disputes too.

I still wonder whether there's ever a point in lawyering if we can't be ****ed to fuss over small details, especially if they're not material to the overall strategic objective.

If this post by Alex Su (...linkedin.com/posts/alexander-su_when-i-was-in-biglaw-i-wasnt-a-very-good-activity-6816020986379456512-1IbK) is right, then it may be there's really no point in the end. Better off admitting we have a skills/traits mismatch and get out lol.

i think cause Baker has a larger intake compared to say, A&O? but I also hear Baker and NRF have brand name clients (e.g. Google, Apple etc), so people naturally feel they're upz.

So although I understand they technically are "strong" in construction, they are highly overrated, nobody there is learning anything useful, assocs are just treated as warm bodies.
Mmmm sounds similar to their corp and banking teams. Always trying to be difficult.
