Doesn't matter for those with already strong portfolio or liked by boss/ got connection. Also depends on the subject, some are known to have higher failure rates.

But for those fighting to not be seen as bottom feeders.. They need to demonstrate why they are assets and failing part b isn't going to help them.

Can anyone shed some light? Thanks.

Why the interest in moving to Singapore, is it the lure of the exotic nubile Singapore Girl on SIA advertisements? I'm afraid to burst your yellow fever bubble but most local girls are far from that.

Are law degree holders allowed to apply for MA programmes? (e.g. Bloomberg, JP etc) And what are the chances that one gets offered the position?

I'm quite sure they are quite interested in Law degree holders, especially those with some background in accounting or finance (especially compliance or FSR). I was offered but I rejected (and this was when I was still a student).

Of course I could have got very unlucky in school and very lucky in work but remember that school is truly competitive (akin to a sports contest) where everyone roughly sits the same exams, but in the real world everyone is working on different cases and deals!
It is cut-throat in litigation though, your learned friends who were once your good buddies can become the dirtiest players in the game, partly due to the adversarial system which puts pressure to "win". And also, clients that will blame and refuse to pay the lawyers if the lawyers lose.

Honestly, my best advice is to stay in Toronto, the working hours in Singapore are crazy and the pay is not commensurate with international standards (the only good thing is lower tax).

For first year assocs in the local Big4, I'll just ballpark it at 6k (but Wongp recently cut salaries). For first years at half-internationals (like Baker), you can expect 7.5k. For the Clifford Chance type firms you'll generally need to do their UK TC (trainee pay is high though), or get a PQE cut, but I am not sure about lateral-ing in for a Canadian lawyer (but I actually assume it's easier than for a SG lawyer).
