I do remember Mcbride telling everyone that no notes are allowed in the exam hall, but the instructions were not very clear. He was not the only one who prepared notes for the exam. Lets give him the benefit of the doubt.

Particularly in law and in politics, dishonesty is a fatal mistake and trust is the very basic foundational characteristic in these two professions. If someone shows dishonesty in their character, chances are he wonít change (unless itís really proven that he has shown remorse). Therefore, for the sake of the people he is representing and the clients he would be taking care of, I absolutely support that his mistake should be brought to the alert of the government.

Moreover, the fact that he was arguing with the professor upon being caught shows a lot about his character too.
Find this absolutely appalling... every one of us has been dishonest in at least some way in our lives. Don't give me this ******** about dishonesty being a fundamental characteristic in politics- that's absolute rubbish. Politicians are some of the most dishonest people around (pls wake up if you haven't realized this yet). Stop acting like a saint. In any case, what are the chances of him actually being elected into Parliament? What is the point of making such a big fuss and potentially smearing his reputation at the age of 23? FFS, this forum has become so toxic it's unbelievable...

stick to the topic at the head of the thread. Please.

Nope, it's getting worse to be honest. They're harder hit than SG-based firms, and it's not a new trend.

I am a 3PQE from a big four. I know this is not the best time to ask this question amidst of the pandemic and travel restrictions. But which practice areas in international firms require travel activities the most? I donít have financial or family obligations and would be quite happy to commit myself to a busy travelling schedule.

Perhaps itís due to the effects of WFH but I really do want to quit my current job and get out of singapore. Itís just an idealistic thought but would appreciate any helpful comments. Thanks!

To add on, I understand there are tons of jobs out there that require business travel like even management consultancy and events planning. But I still wish to stay in the legal industry or perhaps transfer to a legal-related role.

Generally, as a corporate lawyer you don't travel much. Not that much of your work needs to be done face to face because you don't do the negotiations -> your client or financial advisor does, then you take instructions.

Intl arbi and regional disputes will travel more, because they have to be there in person.
