This whole thread can be summarised as follows:-

* Donít study law

* Donít study law at a local uni

* Donít study law at a local uni because you wonít get retained after TC

* Donít study law at a local uni because you wonít get retained after TC and nobody will like you

* Donít anyhow use your kukubird on other people

* How much will I earn per month if I disregard all of the above??? Thanks

Not missing out on much if thread is closed tbh

It does not help that the hiring partners in my practice group appear to share this view.

Hang onto that offer, though be warned; I've been told that the culture at NUS law is rather toxic (good preparation for the cesspool of toxicity that is the legal profession, perhaps?)

SMU is all talk no substance one.
in SMU getting a C is kindda fatal but inNUS. C is like so common.
everyday smu presentation and use non law modules to up gpa
asked the associates in my firm whatís the first principle, they dunno. only knows rulez. LOL
smu is just talk and talk.. even backstab and no culture of notes sharing.


luckily NUS is slightly better. all just do the work as told, donít ask any questions. I like this kind of workers.

culture wise

Generally the quality of work is:
NUS > Oxbridge > SMU, LSE, UCL > other uk unis

Hi all

I’m 8 years into this career, and have made some good career moves along the way, thanks to some amazing mentors who gave me lots of information and insight, allowing me to secure and ace numerous interviews along the way up.

The kindness and guidance has made a world of difference to my career, and I’d like to pay it forward. I previously met another member of this forum, and helped him secure an FSD position in a Big 4. I hope to carry on this work.

If you’re a student, trainee or associate looking for some direction in your career, some assistance in securing a TC or an associateship, or just a listening ear in general, drop me a message and we can chat over coffee. I’ll see if there is any way I can help.

I’ve been insulted before by cynics, and I can’t help it if people doubt my intentions and see this as a move to pick up girls. All I can say is that I’m here to help anyone who’s lost and needs law career guidance or assistance.

Cheers.

Looking for some sucky sucky?

Just kidding. Think you are doing great - society needs more people who are willing to help.

i'm a 3-4 PQE nus grad and after several years of working with other smu and nus grads, i can honestly say there is really no difference. both are solid picks and produce grads who are technically sound in the law.

i used to be an nus snob but that whole supposed rivalry is really overblown and only a thing if you're still a law student.

its the law grads that are from the subpar lower tier overseas schools that are the problem. many of them like to talk a lot, take shortcuts and have rather weak foundations when it comes to legal thinking comprehension and understanding. i think 4 years of rigorous local law education and fighting the bellcurve really makes a whole world of difference.

the good thing about nus is the sheer diversity of modules available in so many areas of law. really took it for granted then & now i realise the wide selection of subjects offered is really a privilege. nus is a solid pick if you want to do a reputable LLM overseas later or are interested in academia.

smu has lesser breadth of modules but the professors are just as good - many were in fact poached from nus! on the plus side they've got a swanky new building, if you're into shiny superficial things.
