(3) Mid-sized really depends. Generally bad except for the boutiques, but it was a bloodbath at one notable boutique.
^ does the name of the 'bloodbath' firm start with a T and end with a P

is it a bad idea to take up a TC in the corporate department in the near future (say 2022) given the bad economy? are firms less likely to retain corp trainee as opposed to liti trainee (not big 4, smaller firm)

Is ok. But ya - you should tell your seniors you have capacity. Or start sniffing around the firm to see if there are any other partners/teams willing to absorb you (on the low down, pls).

SUSS mainly trains students for criminal and family law. May I ask what is the projected salary for NQs in this area? Thanks.

Depends. I know of a few paralegals who are doing the SUSS llb program in my previous firms (in Chinatown) who have had 15+ years of experience and they are easily drawing 9k-10k a month. I am pretty sure they will resume their roles in their current firms and will probably draw even more after they are qualified.

Actually if you read up reports on the market there is a very high demand in private client (including family law, tax, civil liti, conveyancing). To those getting stuck I suggest you can apply to these areas. You will probably have an edge against others (like the newly minted local law school) since you have progressed this far. Career progression is fairly promising as I have peers with 4-5 PQE making partners in the smaller firms and they are actually drawing a salary more than you think. You get to go into the business world at an earlier stage as opposed to getting stuck in big firms. Your salary will depend on how good you are at bringing clients. So, open your minds up a little. There are always many promising opportunities out there if you do more research and get out of the boxed up mindset which society has taught you.
