By the way, the kind of ultra-competitive, over achieving law student you meet in law school, is exactly the kind of ultra competitive over achieving junior associate you meet in law firms. Where do you think most of the graduating law cohort goes to every year? To Starbucks to become baristas?

Don't like it? Don't play the game. No one's forcing you. I'm not the one who did jack all in school and has now ended up with a chip on his shoulder whining about being underpaid in a Chinatown sweatshop.

Are you a junior lawyer yourself who keeps repeating Chinatown, Chinatown? What is wrong with u exactly? I am curious why you have such a big prejudice against Chinatown. I love Chinatown, it's the place I get my Asian fix in every country. I'm long past the law student stage.

You haven't been sent overseas and been paid COLA rates apparently.

I have nothing against Chinatown firms. You can use the appellation Toa Payoh firm if it offends you.

The Government will co-fund 80% of the training allowance. The range for university graduates is $1,800 - $2,500. It is exactly $1,800, bare minimum to qualify for co-funding. Wonder if it will drop back to $0 once Covid-19 is gone.

there's no point being miserable about it. Is it really true that people in other industries have it easier? If someone really think so, then with their A grades etc they can easily score a fancy MBA and land a fancy role in finance and then have a smooth sailing career. What a rosy picture

People in audit have their partners coming in and say yes to clients but who r the ones doing the legwork?
They work till 1am or 2am and come in at 9am and they work on weekends too.

Honestly if your only RLT or TC options are Hoh Law, you just take anything you can get and work upwards from there lah. Btw RHT was the firm that proudly declared they take in trainees without paying them, back in 2018.
