Yes, and they study an extra 3 years for their JD, incur hundreds of thousands in debt, and pay almost 50% of their salary in taxes.

300K for total comp (12 + 4 months) sounds about right

Put on your CV until ****ing shiok.

But for real, unless youíre studying something very specialised at Harvard or Oxford, or if you want to enter academia, I donít think doing those degrees are going to improve your lawyering. It might get people to stand up and notice you though, which might not be a bad thing from a career perspective.

Personally, I'm interested to hear more on this discussion

I didn't know there were so many in-house internships available for nus/smu kids lol
not the guy who "bashed" him but i would also bash OP for saying redundant, out of place, out of touch, uninformed comments like that.

I just could not be bothered to give advice to someone who does not listen to advice which, he/she specifically and literally asked for.

I do not know what "substance" he is putting out because all I see is arrogance and ignorance.

If you did not know there were "in house internships" available for those kids maybe you are also part of the problem, go read up before commenting on something you have no idea about. You are just making a topic, which this forum is about, more opaque than it already is.

Let's get back to what we are all here for, salary.

stfu he's talking out of his a$$ what substance are you talking about.

if you think what he's saying has substance i recommend not coming into this industry. This industry is already full of overpaid idiots. Some from local uni some from foreign uni. Both types also have so its not even about the type of uni that breeds these idiots.

You need to have a certain level of IQ to make it in this industry and if this is the level of substance you guys enjoy debating over then please go do accountancy instead.

Lol stop trying to put out fake news.

First to third year JPs in big4 are approx 17-18k+ base, with 1-2month max of bonus. Unless youíre reeling in huge books of business, which is impossible at this stage.
