I'm really baffled at why you guys keep discussing this US/UK JD/LLM ranking thing so much ....

As a lawyer who studied locally who lateraled into a US firm, I can honestly say that none of my colleagues who also went to NUS/SMU for their undergrad have a masters (or even if they do, they did it during their 4 year LLB at NUS). It is unnecessary for practice, as evidenced by the fact that they managed to make it here regardless.

Furthermore, do you all really think that anyone who is good enough to get into a JD program at harvard or yale will bother coming to SG anyway?

Can you guys focus the discussion on what actually relates to us -> salaries in the SG law context?

Harvard has the most clerkships because they have the largest cohort by far, at around 500. Yale is widely considered to be the most prestigious law school in the US. Historically, they have had the lowest acceptance rates and highest percentage of graduates heading into academia. Also low class sizes means its spending per student is through the roof. Many Harvard professors at Harvard law school are Yale alumni.

It is only outside the states that people have the misconception of Harvard > Yale law, because Harvard is the more internationally renown university. Most applicants would turn down Harvard/Stanford for Yale.

This is because a bunch of unemployed KCL grads have too much time on their hands and are trying to justify their mediocre LLBs which is currently less valuable than toilet paper during CB.
