If a firm does not even want to pay $800 (which is the bare minimum 1-2 man chinatown firm rate), I'm not sure you want to be in the firm). Not only because they are quite tight with their money, but that offer means they are not intending to retain (and probably think they are doing you a favour). Are they in fact doing you a favour (if you are from a lower tier uni plus low grades - perhaps take the offer)?
I work at a law firm where trainees get 1.2k. I am not a trainee.
We don't usually take trainees because there isn't room to retain. But when we do, it's usually cause we're doing peeps a favour. So i'm with this the above poster.

Doubt. The nus law guy running from election is what, at most year 3? Apart from maybe 1 subject, which exam at nus is closed book? Cannot bring notes? Name me the subject and we know if true or not. Don't hide and make anon accusations.

Firstly, email the law school and if you wish to bring this matter further, CC the dean and the professor. Use your lawyering skills to explain why this matter is so serious and why their immediate attention must be required because 100,000 citizens' stake are involved.

Yes. Assuming you're not sarcastic and the above is true. He doesn't deserve to represent a GRC, this is a matter of public interest. You could also CC gov. Do it for the greater good.
