Seems like almost every Singaporean in the past 5-8 years who has gone to KCL has achieved FCH.

If I know would have gone to KCL instead of NUS.

UK FCH is like free candy lol. Nus used to cap it at 5% but now it's 10% so I guess not worth much either

Some big law firms do this, They have different tracks for different calibers of candidates.

It begins with the training contract phase, with 3 tracks

Track 1: Bright candidates with excellent academic results and extra-curricular achievements. Marked by the firm for retention to be groomed

Track 2: Better than average candidates with good academic results and extra-curricular achievements. In this track, some will be retained while others will not, depending on their performance in the firm (or whether boss likes them)

Track 3: Average candidates with average academic results. Not marked for retention at all, used as cheap labour and exploited to provide 'support'



And then for those who are retained by the firm:

Track 1: Groomed and marked to be future partners of the firm (I assume that poster was referring to this as OCS)

Track 2: Just being used as 'serfs' and can only promote to Senior Associate at highest after many years (And this should be WOSPEC)

What is the average increment for lawyers from NQ to 5Q in Singapore? Also, what is the norm as regards the amount of yearly bonuses that are paid out?

Sad to say everyone here is asking for answers but no one is willing to share. The only information you get is KCL sucks and NUS is full of themselves.

LOL so much for this being a salary forum... More like a bunch of unhappy lawyers whining about how much their lives suck.

Average increment ranges from SGD500 to SGD1,000 at NQ to 5Q.
Bonuses really depends on performance. Taking into consideration the 3 months front loaded bonus spread over 12 months, it can range from 3 months (nothing extra to 12 or even 18 months.
