Good math there. Must be a real lawyer.

Legal service (incld JLC): 4.8/4.4k (with NS, 1st/2.1); 4k/3.8k (wo NS, 1st/2.1) - seems low but this is payable from part b/RLT onwards and there is a further increment after 1 year or so
The hours dont justify your pay. I rather earn lesser. Yes I am that in house counsel who earns lesser, but I get much more free time on my hands.

Trained at TSMP, started practice somewhere else.
Shes not chio in real life leh. I met her in her office. She seems to have heavy eyebags. What a poor thing. Shes an associate (meaning she does the grunt work), but definitely a great law career awaiting for her in years to come.

Sub $5k for NQ private practice is damn sad man. Unless you're leaving at 6pm on the dot everyday, which is highly unlikely. And omg what happened to TSMP and their top paying reputation??

From my understanding, legal service bonuses are higher than law firms so eventual take home compensation matches private sector anyways

Hi guys, i need some advice here.
I am graduating next year.
I wonder whether I should take bar and practice? Would it be waste if I dont?

I have a hard time finding a tc and the firm that offered me doesn't pay for my bar course, and its only $300 per month allowance for 6 months during training. Also the firm is not going to retain. So that leaves me another problem to solve a year down the road upon graduation again.

If I just start working, I can earn $3-4k per month.

My question is what opportunities can I get for a legal related role even I do not do part B + tc? Is being called to bar so important?

When I do not get retained, are other law firms keen to hire?

Can you provide us with more details? Are you a local or overseas graduate? If you are local, a decent 2.1 or 2.2 should be able to get you a non-practising career in the public sector.

Local grad
Frankly market is very bad.
I am just thinking ahead.
For these so called non practicing careering in public sector
If they do not need a practicing lawyer, should I go for part b and tc then?
