Default Singapore Legal Service

Hi all - here to seek some advice regarding the Singapore Legal Service. Local grad, have been in private practice (corp, not liti) for about 2-3 years.

Anyone knows if i join service, what grade I will be joining as (like, will I be joining as fresh grad?), and how pay and increment will be like? Also anyone has any insights as to how career progression in service will be like and the possible exit opportunities?

Really appreciate any insights - thanks.

Are you male or female? 2-years NS counts towards experience in Legal Service.

Which department of Legal Service are you applying for? Generally for 2-3 yrs experience, they will hire as Grade 6A or 6B, which are the starting level grades.

Pay wise - I donít know what the rates now are. But it was around 5k many years ago when I joined. Legal service ordinarily pays about 16-18 months in a year, so take that into account.

Increments are good. There are substantial increases with promotions.

Career progression depends, frankly, on attitude and aptitude. Legal service generally far more meritocratic than private practice (where things like connections may make a difference).

Exit options - no clue. Havenít felt the need to leave, so havenít checked. Generally, resignation rate is v Low. But the people whoíve left have found pretty solid jobs.

Heard that you might suffer a PQE cut when you jump out from DPP? Because mostly the DPPs won't join crim law.

Tagging on to your response here. thanks for the insight provided.

I am a female with 2 years law firm + 4 years in house experience in a global mnc. Im now considering joining a government role. Hope you can help me with some questions i have.

1. Do government legal roles generally pay the same? (Agc vs ministry vs stat board)
2. What would be the salary range if i join civil service now at this point in my career?

Thank you!
