Hello, some people might shy away from Chinatown firms cos it seems less prestigious? It depends on the type of cases the firm takes in, e.g. firms in Chinatown tend to focus on Family or State Court level... walking distance to the courts...

Adelphi, Supreme Court area - more expensive rent so maybe(?) can pay more...

Toa Payoh - focus on conveyancing cos near HDB...

Stereotyping a lot here but location may indeed come into play...

Usually both you and him/her should reach a consensus whether to stay on in law or not.
Donít forget JD candidates are much older when they join the legal profession so you could always come back to it again when the economy is better
how would law firms/recruiters view an extended gap in cv though? currently filling my time doing non law courses but would it be better to say do paralegal/inhouse (isnt that a killing a legal career) until landing an associate role, or just wait it out?

paralegalling isn't as glam here as it is in the us/uk. over here paralegalling means you either got the tp diploma or you are a jiu hu kia with llb from some unpronounceable uk village.

if gap cos u cant part a or b then forget about law

if gap cos u doing smu jd and had previous career do apply for b4 and mc they love ppl like that

Whyre you assuming good location only equals enjoying amenities near the office, when determining where to train. Narrow minded much...looks like you canít even be from Dundee at this rate.

Law degree really useless outside the (dead) legal industry, applied for many non-law jobs civil and private sector nobody entertain. Heard from recruiters many jobless lawyers now. Any lawyers turned grab driver/grabfood or safe distancing ambassadors here?

thatís true insofar as what recruiters are saying.
There was a glut but it was supposed to resolve by now.
Considering that there are no longer any new graduates from the delisted unis after 2018.
The problem that current grads are facing is not bcos of the delisted issue.
Itís caused by an economic slowdown. Law is very dependent on businesses, economy to work, so that thereís ancillary work to do.
