I think the future for litigation is bleak except for criminal litigation, but criminal litigation doesn't pay well. For the other fields of litigation, it is clear that the judiciary is trying to push ADR vigorously so it means lesser costs for lawyers. And in family and negligence, there are already moves to cut out the lawyers by making materials accessible to potential LIPs.

Basically 'eat what you kill' litigation is dying. It may not look like it now but the pie is being reduced greatly.

There will still be SCs and top B4 teams monopolizing bet-the-company litigation but for the mid tier and run-of-the-mill litigators, good luck.

This area of practice is only going to be viable if you're a litigator servicing a particular industry with a steady stream of mandates from industry clients, such as insolvency, shipping, insurance, debt recovery and occasional defense of banks. But these are hardly the best paying matters due to institutional client cost-consciousness.

Am a girl here. Given the appointment of the new Dean in SMU law school, I hope something is properly done to curb the guys who think with their jiao jiao.... All these negative news surrounding the legal community are disgusting, from cheating, staff abuse, practising without proper certification to outrage of modesty.

Also wanted to add one thing, SMU said they did a global search for a new Dean. This is truly ironic, they search the whole and eventually chose one in their faculty. Lol what kind of global search is that? Internal promotion just say internal promotion la, why the grandiose

GYH goes for more prestigious, lucrative job liao. Get that SC pay, why waste time dealing with teeny weeny school admin/management work. Tbh, his work in SMU has less than 10 percent legal elements.

The latest appointment of the smu dean shows you two things:
(1) Uk law school grads do not have dimmer prospects than local counterparts.
(2) an LLM from Oxbridge or Harvard is strictly necessary for consideration to be dean of a Singapore law school
