Father mother help buy condo for me and wife lah. And also subsidize 50% of my BMW m4. Don't worry about us most of us lawyers are upper middle class at least.

All this talk about international firms paying Cravath scale, unless you summa/fch, top bar exams and have a good masters (meaning like Harvard Columbia Oxbridge), most people donít stand a chance.
You typically also only get to join these firms as 1st years / NQs after 1-2 years after SG quali

one way to think about living expenses. it is natural to spend more (even lifestyle wise) when you are overseas. do you not spend more when you are travelling? working overseas for a long time is less extreme, but still shares some of that principle. it's easier to just go eat something nice instead of lowballing yourself with a cold sandwich on clearance sale in the downstairs sandwich shop. you didnt go to london to torture yourself.

one thing i ask myself is whether the extra $ i save is going with me into my coffin or not. if not, you can just spend it. if you need it desperately to afford your downpayment then no.

as long as you arent in extreme poverty, it's a fairly paid shot to accumulate CV points. later on, can redeem at a profit over people who don't invest in their careers now.

it's like hearing finance interns comparing whose internship pays $300 versus $600 versus $1.5k. answer is it doesnt matter as long as the cv names look good and the guy lands the $10k starting pay IB job with 9 months bonus.
bottomline: uk for quality of life and sgp for souless standard of living, there's really more to life than that marginal increase in savings in SGD

If you work past 9pm, cab is claimable.
Tax is low. Unless you earn more than $350k a year. But still low by uk standard.
So what? Majority of the law grads will have to work in local firm.
Unless youíre summa/fch, top bar exams or have top llms.
So who cares about Cravath scale salaries.
If you can get such firms, you wonít be on this forum.

Good try squeezing ďcolumbiaĒ in there.

Also, note that having *masters* from top schs like HLS and oxbridge is still, just a masters. Clear attempt to whitewash a normal loca degree

You can keep your sh*tty little Ang Mo Kio Ave whatever flat, garbage name and not even real. I'm having prosecco in Battersea, in a real f*cking house. Only uni kids still have £5 meal deals for lunch from Sainsbury's.
