This is akin to many other professions la, not only the legal industry. Do you see doctors 'made EP' in TTSH, NUH, SGH or even in private hosp? And even if there are, how many are there? They also slog like mad then set up their own clinics if they want

You want equity so much, go join FAANG lor. they give u stock option and you become 'EP'.

There is no need to fix it since those who will speak up are already gone from the voting register

Absolutely tone deaf, and does not account for the stagnation of wages and how the average young software engineer is now way better paid than an average young lawyer. If he wants us to be able to handle the abuse and long hours, at least pay us better relative to other sectors.

The attrition concern also primarily comes from losing business to other jurisdictions, thus affecting the rice bowl of senior lawyers. I say to my fellow junior lawyers - hit them where it hurts and fly high and free, away from this conservative and abusive industry.
Haven't we already raised the issues via CNA/BT on abuse but it goes unaddressed or answered with whataboutism?

Did he drive change in tsmp before he became king?

Will he drive change after his tenure ends as king?

Is he trump in disguise carrying a populist message?

populist message? the reception to his recent messages have been deader than a hillary clinton rally. the only platforms repeating his platitudes are mainstream newspapers.

most junior lawyers are too jaded to care. the ones who care, and who are continuing the discussion on linkedin, are the ones who are no longer in private practice and have fled inhouse.
