Who are the ones bearing the burnt of the economy and taking the risks of getting retrenched all the time since retrenchment in law firms always work from bottom to top? Who are the ones slogging the early stages of their careers out just to get retrenched? Who are the ones who have to slog for 10-20 years just to pay off the mortgage for a HDB because the boomers get to purchase condos at when houses were still at a decent value?

I’m not saying boomers had it easy at all - for you to have climbed up to this position must have been equally difficult (whether or not you have been good at your work or politics). By no means I’m complaining too - this is how society has been structured and there is no one to blame. It is how it is. However, to slam such a baseless proposition on us all the time, claiming we are a “strawberry generation” or “spoilt brats” is just unthinkable. Every generation has its own struggles, there is no comparison. Hence, by putting out such a proposition, it shows nothing but a clear reflection of your outmoded, non-empathetic, prideful, unkind and of course, self-entitled mentality.

But the ceca has fake qualifications bought from a degree mill which would put even a bona fide KCL grad to shame. And I also see the ceca complaining alot like in the condo security guard scandal.

oh really? because the big 4 websites state that reimbursement only occurs upon acceptance of retention offer and completion of a year as an associate as well, so i thought that’s the norm. in any case, thanks for letting me know!

In non covid times, retention rate for big firms is around 75-80% (or more depending on the field). Currently, it really depends on the firm.

If you don't even have the natural instinct to look up the CV of lawyers in firms you're interested in, to get internships, to talk to people in the firm or just other lawyers/seniors in the industry and expect to be spoonfed reliable information in a forum like this... ... I pity anyone who assign you research tasks
