The rankings are done in terms of discrete client industries or areas of legal practice, e.g. aviation finance, shipping, project finance, competition law, construction litigation, capital markets etc etc.

For that, you need to do your own homework and look @ industry publications like Chambers & Partners, Legal500, IFLR, AsiaLaw profiles, or Asian Legal Business.

This isn't like secondary school or JC anymore where you can rank which are the top schools and which aren't, or, as people on this forum seem to have some childish obsession with, law school rankings.

Those people on this forum are not childish. Go ask international (white shoe, magic circle) and see whether they favor pedigree and people from top universities (Oxbridge), FCH, top in Bar, etc.

I wonít name firms but some firms in US/UK even consider LSE, UCL to be not good enough except Oxbridge only. Thatís why people from non Oxbridge (NUS, and other unis), provided they do qualify for the BCL/LLM in Oxbridge go on to do so despite the associated costs and sacrificing one year PQE.

Speak for the UK. The US doesnít care about UK unis - itís almost a must to have a JD/LLM from US unis

Hello Everyone,

I am a Senior Associate in one of the big 3 local firms in KL, Malaysia. I have 4.5 years PQE

Can anyone please tell me what the big 4 in Singapore pays for a person with 5 years PQE and 4 years PQE?

Also what is the standard uplift in pay for a lawyer to go in-house for a MNC? In malaysia the standard is norm is between 20-30% on monthly pay.

Appreciate feedback.

Thanks!

Damn unfair. Girls no need serve NS. By 30 can be partner.
Guys 27 practice. 6 years minimum to be partner. 33 years old.
