Read the FT or WSJ. Volunteer to be on cross-border transactions, preferably in lead counsel roles. Gain as much experience as you can on M&A or Funds or Reg (depending on where you are now). Be friendly to a good recruiter, let him or her know you are actively looking.

Have a hobby and be able to talk about, be it reading, running, football, scuba diving, horse riding.

Know more about the firms through formal directories and informally whether through RoF or ATL.

Be confident.

If after a few tries it doesnít work - join A&G first (unless you are already there).

for tuition fees alone, around 40K SGD for UK LLM, and 70-90K SGD for US LLM.

LOL you sound like a true TSMPer.

I don't think those acquisitions are sound in a post pandemic world.

in any case, LLM is not useful for practice, and as long as the school sounds reputable and you take some relevant LLM courses, i'm sure it would suffice lah.
