Oh man I regret not choosing comp science as my degree - law was a mistake
Don't be fooled by minute differences in starting pay. Law has a much higher earning potential in the medium to long term.

Of course, if you are not cut out for law in the first place, then you might not even survive, so you should choose your degree based on interest/aptitude and not simplistic comparisons of starting pay.

What u say is still true now. The median outcomes for law 5 years in, is better than the median outcomes for SWEs.

Means, you can be a rather mediocre lawyer slogging in midtier and still earn a good wage (compared to other white collar professionals). If you're a rather mediocre SWE, you'll be slogging in a midtier role in some non-FAANG place like NCS where pay and trajectory is bleak.

The caveat is that as everything is increasingly tech driven, basically coders will become as important as language. But I believe this development will only fully ripen for the next generation.

Default Academia or Masters in something else

FCH grad, but from delisted UK School. Practising about 1.5 years now. I am thinking of moving into academia (in the UK), possibly doing masters at somewhere better.

Practice kinda sucks. Any seniors on this forum done PHD or did a non law masters?

If not academia, was thinking of doing business/commerce related.

Anyone did masters down that route?

Your LLM needs to be from Harvard or Oxford or Cambridge if you intend to be a legal academic at any of the law schools in Sg.
If you are just using your LLM to do NY bar or get a US/UK job, LSE/UCL, Columbia, NYU all those are fine.
