There isn't much substance to NUS 2:1 "elitism". Seriously, grow up. No one at the Bar cares whether you're NUS, SMU, KCL, Bristol, Hull or Leeds. There are also many, many metrics by which you can measure academic competence.

Even then, academic competence does not necessarily translate to practical competence. You are a practitioner. Not a textbook author (though, some practitioners are also very, very strong academically, but I am just making a point). Your clients come to you for practical and commercial advice, not a law school essay on what a leading academic says.

From the client's perspective - you write an essay, you're out. I don't pay you to give me an essay you wrote in your first semester of law school. I pay you to give me what I want.

This forum should reflect a profession, not a school or a playground. The theatrics here is embarrassing.

I'm not even sure if some of these trolls even took the oath to uphold the law seriously. With the oath in mind, I don't ever think it is approriate to comment on how the upskirt photo was acceptable (referring to the post above in the last few pages). Did you even think before posting?

On the degeneration of this forum into political divides by the trolls, why do you even care? What does someone's political beliefs matter to you? Arsenal, Man U, Man City, PAP, WP?

What's it to you, so much do that you need to come and post anonymously about your Facebook friends supporting a certain political party? Why is it "brown nosing" to express your political beliefs?

Are you really so narrow minded that any support for a view contrary to yours is "brown nosing"? Is there no reasonable degree of freedom of expression in Singapore?

This will also my last post on this thread. If it changes your mindset, my time isn't wasted. But I pity the fools who remain entrenched in propagating stupidity and nonsense, and who waste their time with perceived elitism and misogyny.

I bet NUS rejected u thatís why u sour

I'm not sour. I had an excellent supervising solicitor (from NUS) who highlighted the differences between academic and practical competence. This idea didn't come from me.

Admittedly, I was once you until I entered practice 3 years ago.

Anyway, not here to change your mind or start a debate. By all means, hold on to your beliefs. It's what makes you as a person, isn't it.

I'm off dude (until this forum is actually constructive and/or useful).

"Exclusive: Singapore firm slaps down lawyer for spilling on slashed bonus"

Singapore firms are reducing their lawyers' bonuses and salaries, and one firm has disciplined one of its own lawyers for revealing details of the cuts.

Sources report that three of the so-called 'big four' firms in the country, Allen & Gledhill, Drew & Napier, Rajah & Tann, and Wong Partnership, have cut bonuses and, in some cases, reduced salaries. The country's biggest firm by headcount, Rodyk & Davidson, confirmed to RollOnFriday that the low end of its bonus had been dropped. A spokeswoman blamed "the regional ecomonic slowdown", saying that the last two years had been "exceptionally strong".

However that went down badly with at least one Rodyk & Davidson lawyer, who sent a photo of the email informing staff of the cuts to his friends. An insider says that the firm has now "taken action" against him, although its spokeswoman declined to clarify what the action was, telling RollOnFriday. "we cannot comment publicly about our internal employee management process".

That email made the spokeswoman lose face. $ the last two years had been "exceptionally strong" $ narrative is fake news. Today's POFMA should do DRD in instead for misleading statements

Fat hope. If you are born a sinkie you must have done some bad karma in your previous life, nothing you can change about it.

PAY SECRECY

Does your law firm force you to keep your pay secret?

In the West there's PAY SECRECY LAWS prohibiting companies from punishing workers who disclose their pay.

Obviously SG does not have this* D'Rodyk was able to punish lawyer.
