All are keyboard warriors lah. if really that good, put down contact number or meet up to chit chat.

End of the day, just online trolling each other.

Move on man.

The Rolex is the older brand, historically favoured by eminence and has the benefit of greater accuracy ( there could perhaps be dependence between these factors). As a result it commands the higher price and reputation.

In terms of a university education, the analogy of accuracy is a very important word: Rigour.

Given the nature of the observer, the level of rigour will matter. Some observers will not see this distinction necessary or fail to see it: these are the ordinary jobs. Other observers will be able to tell the difference: These are the higher level positions. A notable example is the legal profession.

If a person is facing a murder charge, is he more willing to entrust his life to a cambridge lawyer or Suss lawyer?
Please introduce me to a Cambridge lawyer that does criminal defence work (not scholars working for AGC). I'm very interested to meet them.

in sg?
Because let's be honest, HK is a lot free-er than SG (was, maybe, considering all that's happening now).

The truth is that the criminal bar is looked down upon by most of the profession. I trained in a criminal practice and my god, the discrimination is real. Most lawyers who have options won't choose this path - it is a difficult one [no money, no reputation, kena bullied by your "learned friends"].

Anyway, maybe that will change considering everything that's being done to raise the profile of "community" lawyer-ing.

Glad to not be doing criminal work anymore.

Peaceout.

Most legal peers don't look down on criminal bar. They probably only look down on those shoddy lawyers that tend to permeate the criminal bar. The late Subhas wasn't looked down on and Sant Singh is quite feared among the AGC. As long as one is good in his/her profession, most lawyers won't look down on criminal lawyers. And those who look down on criminal lawyers purely because of the criminal 'stigma' are frankly ignorant and clients should reconsider another lawyer.

I am not in criminal work or family work, but I don't look down on those who are doing it. In the end, if they are good at their work, they deserve my respect.

Nah EDMW trumps most politically correct ivy jds and cantabs/bcls with its unvarnished candor. Pretty good for a chuckle in between submissions, I say.

For every battered wife, there is an asshole husband. You must be ok with telling both sides of the story - no matter what people say about you.

Most days you don't get to choose who you represent. On the off chance you get to choose your clients, and you choose to represent the battered wives... understand that you'll be agreeing to a lot of deferred payment schemes, if you even get paid. You cannot hope to earn much if you only represent battered wives.

Work for a firm that actually does family law litigation/mediation etc, not those firms that literally ONLY do e-filing of uncontested divorces. If the only experience you get after six months is filing uncontested divorces on e-lit, that's not good learning.

I know many lawyers who only do family law and do it happily. They believe in what they do and have made peace with the downside that comes with it.

Go in with your eyes wide open.
