Saw this and I wonder what everyone’s view of a career in criminal practice Is, whether as a prosecutor or defence counsel. This suggests that it is rewarding but not sure if it is just marketing….

Chenthil’s resolve to remain a defence counsel comes despite the frustrations he faces at work. “Criminal work can be quite stressful because although you’re working very hard for deserving people, they may not always be able to pay. You’ve got to make up the time somewhere else,” says the partner at Withers KhattarWong, who also does civil work.
different kind of rewarding lah. either you get die poor with lots of karma and come back as andy lau in next life. or you die rich with no karma and reincarnate as chinatown litigator

Definitely marketing. They're also recruiting for the new public defender's office as well as the general shortage of criminal defence lawyers because it simply isn't a lucrative practice area.

AGC has no lack of talent pool of prospective hires, because there's still a cachet of prestige working for the govt / Singapore Legal Service (nothing prestigious compared to international firms obv, but it's not that far off from big 4, and definitely leaps and bounds ahead of your run-of-the-mill local midtier and chinatown sweatshops).

It should be noted that SUSS grads were supposed to fill this shortage of criminal defence lawyers, but to absolutely nobody's surprise at all (since there's no restrictions on which areas they can practice), most SUSS law grads would simply use their education as a 'backdoor' way of getting a recognized local LLB on the cheap despite being NUS or SMU rejects, and join the more lucrative practice areas.

The best route as a crim defence lawyer is to work in one of the white collar crim defence teams in the big firms, like Chentils, Sashi, Wendell's or Chee kun's, then jump to do regulatory, investigations and fraud in an international firm.

Uh. The BCL is definitely harder than the Llm in Yale/Harvard. Everyone knows if you want a good time go do your LLM in the states.

In any case, not like you can get in/study at any of these unis before.

Criminal law is fun. I love making prosecutors lives difficult and always claim trial.

I agree. BUT difficulty in the program is in this case very much inversely co-related with difficulty in admission and brand prestige.

Yeah, despite being academically harder, the Oxford BCL and Cambridge LLM are easier to enter than say the HYS LLMs, given that UK unis don't give a crap about your extra-curricular activities. You essentially just need a 1st from any random university.

Conversely, for the HYS LLMs, you need to tell a story of how you're so amazing that rainbows shoot out of your ass, whether through your extra-curricular activity or some made up life story.

This discussion is moot for almost 95% of law graduates.
Since they will simply never get Oxbridge or Harvard LLM.
Beyond Harvard and Oxbridge LLM, yes the top 50% of law graduates will essentially qualify

What if you have to go against former JLCs from Oxbridge ? Good game
