Strangely enough, if you search battersea law, you'll see that Baker Mackenzie W&L paid google to make them one of the first links.

[QUOTE=Unregistered;192609]Classic clueless Singaporeans going on and on about universities and academic rigour. Grow up and move on. Outside of appeal cases how much academic skill is there in practice.

If you donít want to be a partner move to international and grind your youth away for upper middle class income before going in house or changing industries.


Do you mean to grind it till a certain point before changing industries? I thought its better to change industries from the beginning since need to start all over

This is the harsh reality of life. and no I'm not a racial equality SJW.
My firm (in London, as English as they come) just took two Aussie associates as laterals, both of whom are Chinese Australian and did LLBs, so not sure what you are going on about.

Read properly - it says "someone from the OECD economies of Canada or Australia, will be preferred over someone from Singapore, even if they're theoretically equally qualified and/or experienced"

It isn't a race thing as people seem to be interpreting wrongly. No wonder Singaporeans keep racializing all issues.

It is mostly a country thing. There's a pecking order of countries from which candidates are preferred, and a candidate from an advanced First World / OECD economy would always be preferred over a non OECD economy from the global south. It so happens that the aforesaid countries are historically, and remain presently, majority white countries.

Canada and Australia have better claims than Singapore of being a First World advanced economy.

Again, it is not a race thing. An average British-born-Indian grad will be perceived as a preferred hire in a US/UK firm over an average India-born-Indian grad. Same with Chinese - An Australian-born-Chinese grad will be a preferred hire over a Singapore-Chinese or HK-Chinese grad.

We r talking about working in the HQs of major international law firms in NY and London. We're not talking about working in their outposts in Asia, where of course they're prepared to hire lots of local lawyers from whatever jurisdiction they set up shop in.
