Yes. I still remember those years I hardly get any sleep during my first 5 years.

All I faced daily was getting scolded and butchered

Big 4? How bad is the scolding? I know some places don't scold

I wonder why has lawsoc / judiciary do anything about these mental abuses incidents after all these years.

we are really behind UK OZ in addressing such issues.
No breach of PCR?

This is what you get when you put some abused person in a position of power, creating a vicious cycle. Partner was scolded as a trainee/associate, so when he/she gets to a position of power he/she repeats the same on his junior. Partner scolds associate. Associate scolds trainee.

The only objective is to earn as much money as possible from your billables. We're all replaceable. When you say higher ups, given that this is quite rampant in this industry, what makes you think they haven't done the same to their own juniors?

I've heard from a senior lawyer of (big caveat, idk if true) associates being outright pushed and scolded in important places. There are also file throwers (a hybrid form of abuse). No one at the junior level is going to speak up. No senior is going to do it - why speak up against a peer when they have all clawed their way there? Some call it tough love/training, some call it abuse. But when violence is involved (not sure if getting verbally abused for 40 minutes is better), that's where the line is crossed.

Although, obviously, if you want your job you have to take the abuse if you speak up you're fired and unemployed because he's going to ruin your career for ruining his. Without concrete evidence, he/she will just deny it and ruin your future prospects.

Nope. Not going to happen. What's in it for them for being ethical? A bad reputation

Asking for friend...

A fresh hire was literally ridiculed by his upper-study during her first assignment. Got her face shouted at in front of the whole floor.

Reason? She simply highlighted that shes not familiar with preparing DCF spreadsheets for merger assumptions. Is this really part of a jobscope for first years fresh out of law school?

Which firm is this? No. I don't do corporate. However, at any firm (barring a midsized firm that I won't name that exploits interns as cheap labour, no sleep) I have been in, (i) interns are treated well (ii) interns are not given heavy responsibilities, what more a first year.

This behaviour is quite unethical.
