Experienced lawyer here, now in-house (~7-8PQE)

Always been pretty curious why lawyering remains so popular among the younger ones. The fundamental issues plaguing our industry hasn't changed since more than a decade ago when i was a law student vying for TCs and then retention.

Oversupply at entry level, under-supply/attrition at mid level, terrible WLB, poor pay per hour, oftentimes bad mentors and bosses, or at the very least lousy managers (since technical legal skills don't translate well to people mgmt).

Now that law has lost its lustre to other industries like tech, why is it still so attractive? Amazingly, tHis industry still finds a way to suck in a fair amount of bright young JC kids when they have other better options.

One of my peers is claiming on LinkedIn that she graduated in the top 10% of her law cohort when she didnít. How to flag this to MinLaw and what are the repercussions?

The backstabbing is real. I bet you are still ďfriendsĒ with her in real life, smiling in front of her but secretly plotting her demise behind her back.

What better options? Straight As JC students will only opt for either Law or Medicine. Whatís the point of opting for courses like business or engineering, when you have studied so hard to get the good grades. Medicine is also a long grind, something which is not very tolerable for many youths these days. Hence, many choose Law instead. Tech is way more competitive than Law due to the lower barriers to entry. Anyone can enter Tech as long they have a bachelors degree, not necessarily in software engineering or computing.

Thumbs down

What better options? Tech is generally more competitive than Law, and thereís so many Indians coming here to snatch jobs.

Itís either Law or Medicine for a Straight A student. Law is a faster route and costs less. Medicine involves a huge bond commitment if you are studying in NUS/NTU.
