If you are set on starting your career at an international firm in London then an Oxbridge undergrad degree (or any UK uni degree tbh) is far superior to any qualification you can get at NUS.

Then get Oxbridge lor. NUS is sg law. Oxbridge is engrish lor. If you wanna work in engrish place you need engrish law.

But think carefully. Brexit is coming. You better go study NY law cause that's probably gonna be really popular as choice of law in future

Yeah brexit or not, Oxbridge still the greatest for common law syllabus.
Get Oxbridge law degree first, then take NY bar.
Come back work few years. Then run for parliament.

As for corp, I have been on the other side of the table from them as well. Felt like they were just being antagonistic for the sake of it...

Usually you need top grades to justify your visa. If op canít even get SG TCs, UK even harder eh.

generally true. but i think doing well in high-profile moots (eg, Jessup, Vis) can help. like those bigger moots NUS/SMU typically do well in. definitely not those lame speed moots or intra-UK uni rubbish moots

Most firms will look at your academic prizes. Have you seen some of the jokers? They collect book prizes like Pokťmon gym like that. Sick as heck.
