Hah, not sure if you're being ironic or genuine. But I'll give you the benefit of the doubt and say thanks. Practicing law really is about moderation - and no salary is worth the bad health problems down the road.

Anyone can comment on joining nus/smu law as a lecturer/Sheridan fellow?

What kind of grades they need? How is their pay like?

Nothing short of a first class (top 5%) unless you have solid references from established chairs.

When they pay you US$180k the day you qualify as a newly qualified lawyer, and this goes up 10-15k USD per year, reaching US$340k (basic) in your 7th year, 24h also can give to them.
Because 40 can reach partnership, and u earn $2-3M a year

I see. But how is the pay like?

Are they really good at the law or are they just good at playing fancy writing ah? Is it a good idea to join academia without some pqe?

Haha bro it's not as rosy as you think... most people can't stand the crazy lifestyle and drop out to go inhouse after spending just a few years in biglaw.

From my understanding, to be able to become a law academic (lecturer or assistant prof) with no Pqe means you have to be really really good (beyond good like Oxbridge or references from established chairs).
Most of the time, most academics have some years of Pqe.

Sheridan fellows are not lecturer or assistant prof lah.
They are training to be one, like a practice trainee is not an associate but merely training to be one. Same reasoning.

Partnership in a US law firm is insanely tough to get. Most people exit the ladder after year 8 without partnership, and go in-house or go to UK outfits as partners (where partners earn significantly less). Not a bed of roses.

Itís US$190k btw, 180 is outdated.
