How prestigious is JD from NUS SUSS SMU? Which one higher ranked? Will employers let JD candidates skip a few ranks to be partner faster since they have work experience?

No. Nobody seriously thinks that the JD from these schools are equivalent to a North American JD or even "true" JDs.

A North American JD is a North American JD, period.

As a matter of fact, many top US law firms look down on even Canadian JDs unless its from say UoT (literally the only law school in Canada that matters internationally).

Some background info for you, the NUS JD here used to be called Graduate LLB (GLB) until SMU started calling their programme a JD, then NUS switched their terminology to avoid looking inferior.

good to see some SUSS representation amongst the latest batches of trainees in the fam and dispute practices of some of the b5/b4 (whatever you want to call) firms . hopefully this dispels the stereotype that SUSS graduates are inferior as compared to their counterparts from the other local unis.

I don't think we should be concerned about SUSS graduates being seen as inferior. I believe they're adequate enough for legal practice.

The more important question is why are they taking up commercial liti roles? They are supposed to fill the shortage of lawyers in fam, crim and community-type law.

Were they all lying in their admissions interview about their passion for the man in the street?

Nothing wrong with aiming a better life? Can't expect the new PDO to absorb all of them. IIRC a SUSS JD without any government subsidies is the most expensive JD program across all the local law schools.

SUSS grads are obviously inferior, given they are NUS rejects. Are they even in the QS world rankings? No.

There is nothing wrong with aiming for a better life but that was not his/her point (or the Gov's).

So what if the JD is expensive? The JD graduates presumably signed on because they did the whole "I am passionate about helping the underprivileged etc" song and dance when applying for the programme. Which was the point of the programme to begin with.

Doing SIAC arbitrations at $400/hr chargeout rate is not "passionate about helping the underprivileged". That is disingenuously backdooring your way into "a better life".

I am all for a UK style GDL so that the profession is not closed to mid-career switchers. But the SUSS JD is not that, it was never intended to be that, and as a result of which so many persons still go unrepresented at the 4th floor of the State Courts.
