Harvard law guy suggested he was good because he spoke 2 additional European languages, had a piano licentiate and was a Shakespeare/hamlet buff.

Iím sure you had similar abilities non-academic skills as above.

Itís a no brainer if itís a LLM from Harv, Yale, Oxbridge.
Anything after that, youíve to think hard weighing the cost and time as against PQE.
Yeah. PQE man. That's 1 year of salary + Fees of LLM (assuming we're responsible adults and don't ask for a mother father scholarship)

For non-HYOC LLMs that's the only benefit. Same for undergraduate. Practise Singapore law (NUS, no Oxbridge as you are likely not to need it. The order is NUS = SMU > Oxford, Cambridge, LSE, UCL). In Singapore circles NUS is king.

Practise foreign law - look to the schools that are reputed there. Stanford is good placement for US firms.

For good options in both - Cambridge, Oxford, London. Obviously the higher you go the higher statistical probability you'll get a MC/SC job. NUS with LLM or NUS with high 2.1 and extracurriculars or NUS with FCH (you need to justify the gap as to why you're practising the law of another legal system. One way is to show you are really good at Singapore law, likely to catch on quick post-UK bar).

[ Understanding diversity in the UK context - for a period of time before this diversity catch word, all barristers were firsts from Oxbridge and Dist BCL (majority still are. Try getting into Blackstone or Fountain without being blue enough). All Magic Circles hired in the past like White Shoes (yes, solicitors did not need law degrees but stark majority were Oxbridge Harrow Eton blue bloods doing subjects like history. They are likely to be your partners and senior partners). Basically, law was an old boys' club. ]

Agree with everything except that NUS = SMU. They are not on the same pedestal.
NUS is WAY ahead of SMU. Oxbridge is definitely > SMU.
NUS is definitely not > Oxbridge: arguments might be made for parity but thatís about as far as it goes. NUS is definitely > LSE/UCL because NUS admissions is 3x more restrictive than LSE/UCL.

Yeah delusional to think that NUS Law > Oxbridge Law.
Parity maybe. SMU is really a notch lower than NUS.
Even in terms of admission criteria, rankings, feedback from hiring partners, industry standing, reputation, etc.

Yeah, I can personally attest to this. I have worked with SMU colleagues and they are nowhere as intelligent. Itís **** how we are clumped together with all these mediocre people in the workplace.

Can't find real numbers for NUS admission rates.

Anyway, context was Singapore law. Practically, 4 years Singapore law vs 3 years BA Oxford English law. Who can advise on Singapore law aspects better?
