Just go on one of the popular dating apps, state that you're a lawyer and guaranteed + chop you'll land some pretty and Ez tail. Intelligence is optional.
Don’t waste time on dating apps. They are all mainly people trying to rebound, not serious, wasting others time

Still looking for new job opening. Might as well make best use of time. Anyone got other recruiters to recommend ? What about Emily Tan? Good or not

Jesus Christ if you are a Singapore lawyer then the all-too-frequent complaints about your ilk's lack of commercial awareness may actually not be overblown.

ROFL acting like you arent a “singapore lawyer”. Probably some lame NUS/SMU second-upper slogging it out as a JA in big4

Not sure if you're trolling here with the reference to Emily Tan? But to answer your question earnestly anyway - you can find the poor reviews of her in the posts before. And my experience with her was no better.

Why is this trolling?

If you're good, you'll still get offers, I say this as a person who took law as a second degree. Although the firms want to know that you have "longevity" in the industry (given the high burnout rate among lawyers), they do so by assessing your application and interview answers (why did you change to law etc) and it is not really based on age (but instead it is based on why you took so long to change to law - is this just a mid-life crisis, will you switch careers again in future etc).

Having said that, nobody really cares whether you are older, it's honestly more about whether you feel bad taking instructions from Senior Associates or Partners who may be younger than you. If you do liti, you may also get scolded by people younger than you, is that something you are alright with?

It's not about discrimination per se, it's just that you'll have to start from ground zero, meaning they will treat you like any fresh law graduate, and you'll have to work from the bottom up. Only you can tell if you're willing to take on a "newbie" role and have to be the bottom of the ladder again.

Additionally, this is something I've seen time and again, you have to really think about the opportunity cost for yourself, especially if you're already in a high paying job:

1. Do you really want to switch and start over (although the money will come in as you gain more experience)? Will the average law pay represent a bump/drop to your current pay, do you think you can stay in law long enough for it to pay off?

2. Do you have enough savings to sustain yourself for 3 years of studies + 6 mths part a/b + the new one year trainee regime?

3. Having left university for so long, are you sure you are mentally ready to go back in, and actually put in the hours to study and get a good grade? It's not easy picking up a textbook when you've been working at a job (on basically autopilot) for years. Remember, if you want this decision to make financial sense, you're looking at mid-size to large firms at the least, meaning that you should aim for at least the top 25% of your class.

Lastly, if you think that it's still worth it, then also consider if your family commitments will allow it (will your family be supportive, can they take the pressure of providing for you/not having your financial contributions for 4 years)?

I'm not discouraging you from pursuing law as a second degree (I've done it myself), but I find that the people who take law as a second degree, and stay in law, have a certain level of family support, stability and are generally starting law school younger than 35 (any older than that and they usually don't do so well in school).

You have to weigh the cost-benefit carefully before embarking on your plan.
hey thanks for taking the time to write your reply.

did you do your law deg in SG or abroad? I see on linkedin that most people in bigger firms are from local unis. i would assume hiring from our local uni is because of its promise to quality.

finances aside, i am more worried about getting interviews and scoring higher honours. my friend grad law during the glut period and there were stories of people unable to secure training contracts (or, as a joke, having to pay the firm to get a training contract). is the situation better now?
