Hi all, a query.

Assuming I land an offer in say, the Legal Service, conditional upon graduation with Second Upper.

But I'm not confident of maintaining that class of honours and I would definitely be looking at other opportunities. Am I obliged to inform the other firms that I am applying to about the current offer that I have? And what are the repercussions if I break that conditional offer, before graduation?

Thanks!

Default Pvt law school

Hi all is it advisable to take a diploma from a private law school here followed by a degree from the same school? I'm aware that under the bar council, graduates from these schools can't practice as lawyers here. What other opportunities would I have besides being a lawyer after graduating with a degree from one of these private schools? Thanks in advanced to those who took time to read my post and reply!

Essentially your only option is to be a paralegal or secretary.

The only opportunity is to take up UOL DL program and do well enough to transfer to a recognised university in UK. Else, if you wish to be admitted to the bar, go for one of the lesser-known UK/Aus universities that are on MiniLaw's list.

If I were you, I would definitely consider at the same time other opportunities. I suppose you could tell if the other firms do ask.

I canít see any repercussions in breaking the original offer unless there is something extraordinary that the Legal Service may have imposed on you.

That said, it probably isnít very nice but so is not being able to have a job should you not get a 2nd Upper.

JP as a 6th year-er in a mid-sized firm is not too bad. Does it feel like there is more responsibility / autonomy or is it no different from being an associate/senior associate?

I doubt your peers in the big firms are earning 1.5 times more but I also doubt that for most of them, their souls are really their own.

It looks like you are in a nice place!

I am in my 6th year of this profession, just been made a salaried junior partner in a medium sized local firm. Average pay is about 10k a month not including bonuses, and there is no CPF (apparently partners are considered self-employed).

My boss doesn't own my soul, but my hours are erratic, on occasion working 12-16 hours a day (not always).

I am sure that my peers in bigger firms are earning 1.5 times more, but they are also probably working longer hours.
