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.
For magic circle firms like CC, increment of about SGD2,000 per year.

Would you rather take a front-loaded or non front-loaded salary in this case?

Itís the same as CC. Unlike other JVs like withers khattarwong, Morgan Lewis Stamford etc, CC and cavenagh are truly fully integrated and there is no difference being employed by either.

I saw that in the most recent graduate employment survey, SMU law grads had a median starting salary of 4500 and NUS law grads had a median starting salary of 5500. Why is there such a big difference? Is NUS truly better than SMU by such a stretch that SMU law grads are less able to get into the higher-paying firms?

Default Why not quit law

A colleague proposed over a decidedly inebriated state that instead of getting retained after our TC to form a party for the next GE; pretty good ROI even if we just make MPs and draw $15000 a month using only 10% of the brain cells we would as lawyers anyway.

That way one could quit law but not quit helping people, which is possibly more than what former and potential future colleagues can lay claim to, heheh.
