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.
What about AGC? Who would be the people to shadow or learn from? Can you ask to work with specific individuals like an SC or their top litigators when you apply? And would working with such people be equally marketable if you decide to go out to practice after? Or does it not work the same way?

No point. Low chance of transition to intl firms. Based on past record.

Go A&Gís M&A or something - best chance to go intl firm

Lol stop the hero worship. Ive gone up against former JLCs, SCs and equity partners and won. If the facts and the law are in your favour, it is easy.

The work in NYC is still miles ahead of the work here, in terms of scale and complexity. Itís a reflection of the market maturity and size of the economy. Working in NYC is probably better exposure and may be a good choice for young lawyers, even after factoring the crazy rent and high tax.
