SUSS also prides itself on hiring practitioners to be lecturers, but some practitioners do not have a firm grasp of the theories and frameworks, leading to a lot of confusion amongst students. There are also complaints of opaque and arbitrary grading for assignments.

I think if you go to SUSS law, prepare to do a lot of self study. That being said, it's still a better option than most overseas universities because it's cheaper with the MOE tuition grant.

So your opinion is that academics should remain academics? And practitioners should remain practitioners. In other words, there shouldn’t be any co-mingling of academics and practitioners?

He said "some" practitioners do not have a firm grasp of the theories and frameworks, not "all". If you can't read, then at least shut the f**k up.

Why the need to be so hostile?

On the issue of salaries, is it true that for the shutdown, firms are reducing the salary of associates for the month of April and May?
Does this only apply to big 5?

Bonus cut is expected. What is more of a concern is the monthly salary. If cut, it’s very difficult. Would billing requirements be put on hold as well? There’s no way to hit 1,800 hours or 5-6x of base in this current climate
