and poor local plebs become jaded, bitter and miserable, never able to enjoy evenings and weekends, going to sleep at 3am hugging their hentai body pillow until they get retrenched at 40, bald, virgin and still living with their parents.

ACP was a bloodbath this year, apparently the markers failed a lot of people pre- and post moderation. Didn't matter if you were from NUS, failure rate was high.

Be careful of wills and IP. Those also had high failure rates this and last batch

Mediation is no longer a touch and go subject. Paper was hard.

CBT idk.

I took none of these modules

Honestly most associates would just appreciate if the extra money went into bumping up the base salary.
I thought they actually saved money moving there.

Default Paralegal to Associate

Hi guys, would you recommend a NQ to accept a paralegal position with a US firm, with an option to possibly convert to an associate position 2 years into the role? Do international firms actually convert, or are they just paying lip service?

Very likely to be lip service, there is still a possibility, but don't forget if times are tough they will simply load you with work but never convert you. I would go in as a lateral. IT is not that difficult

Been offered this by some recruiters, but no offshore firm will ever guarantee conversion and I have not heard of of a local grad getting converted. Maybe do some dd on the firm's lawyer profiles if there was any assoc who started off as a paralegal in the firm.
