SG law academy did an informal poll on the latest mass call and found that 1 in 5 ppl surveyed has yet to find employment. I suggest people to either take this as a break or find something else. There are always routes around.

fugg that's dam bad. I willing to bet will remain depressed even after Covid passes. Firms super chao kwan. This really fked over future lawyers.

Maybe this is the correction the industry needed. Discourage ppl from joining. Give it 5 or 6 years starting pay sure go back 5k again cos not enough ppl.

Contrary to popular beliefs on this forum, there are many other things one can do with a law degree. You just got to research and find a suitable field. Donít only listen to your aunties uncles regarding the industry. With the revolution of tech companies, there are many interesting opportunities out there and sometimes the pay is pretty good and they are looking for very specific skills. Being legally trained is definitely useful in many aspects.

I agree.

... but i will also say that most people who leave usually train and work in law firms before moving to on to other things. There is much value in law firm training, if for no other reason than to realize that you can withstand so much **** and still be ok.

What kind of specific skills do they look out for? I am an NQ with nothing to account for except for some general litigation exposure

But you have to realise this is crunch time. You either sit around and continue looking for firms and get rejected all the way or you look for other opportunities and get out straight. Ideally the scenario which you have provided would be the way. But given the turbulent situation, best is to cut losses out quickly. You will realise that few years down the road it wouldnít matter whether you quit law now or quit law in two years (and if you are lucky enough you will probably be earning marginally more than your lawyer peers).
