Default Asking

Hi! Hope everyone is well.

Could any recent qualified (Aug/Sept Mass call) in big 4 provide any insights as to your starting pay packages? This would really help! Thanks very much.

Just curious I hear Singaporeans complaining of CECA and import of foreign talents. But why don't Singaporean lawyers go to India for counter import?

Is it because pay there is no good?

If you are litigator, why would you want to litigate Indian law in India?

If you are commercial/transaction counsel, you can work in Singapore and do Indian deals.

Why need to go over to earn Indian money?

Hi, I am not a lawyer but would like to ask all the lawyers in this forum. Is it true that the women charter is extremely biased towards women, and are there many cases in real life where women abuse this charter deliberately to gain an unfair advantage?

No. Stop spreading fake news and move on.

Most of the posters here are kids who have just graduated from university. They havenít worked for very long in the law, and judging by the tenor of the posts, most of them likely will not work very long in the law. This really isnít the forum to ask this question.

How is that fake news? How about you take a few seconds to substantiate your point or don't even bother at all?
Its well known the WC is a relic of a time where the male is the sole breadwinner of the family and this is no longer the norm in 2019.

CECA didn't exactly throw open the doors for either side. Legal services remain heavily regulated in both Singapore and India and CECA did not really change this. Some Singaporeans may complain about CECA, but please don't generalise this to include all Singaporeans.

As to why Singapore lawyers don't practise in India, this is largely because laws in India do make it very difficult to do so. While Singapore doesn't exactly make it easy for Indian lawyers, there are still avenues for Indian lawyers to practise here (e.g. as Registered Foreign Lawyers). Unfortunately, the same can't be said for Singapore lawyers wanting to practise in India as India's Advocates Act tightly restricts who can practise there. For example, although you don't need to be a Singapore Citizen to be called to the Singapore Bar, India's Advocates Act requires that someone intending to be called to an Indian Bar be a citizen of India.

A 2018 ruling by India's Supreme Court also limits the extent to which foreign firms and lawyers could advise clients in India (see: https://www.lexology.com/library/detail.aspx?g=4baf8390-ce75-4ae9-863e-7835bb66d702).
