I think if you go to SUSS law, prepare to do a lot of self study. That being said, it's still a better option than most overseas universities because it's cheaper with the MOE tuition grant.
So your opinion is that academics should remain academics? And practitioners should remain practitioners. In other words, there shouldn’t be any co-mingling of academics and practitioners?

Those who don't practice liti in the trenches don't know who is who. Corp lawyers usually hiding away in their offices and emerging only to pat themselves on the back during ALB awards dinner.

I can't tell if Im being trolled. You say that I'm arguing that lawyers are essential then say I'm not addressing whether law practices can survive? Aren't law firms made up of lawyers?

Personally, I believe the work will continue to flow in. However, the caveat is that there will be lowballing by clients because many companies and individuals will scrimp and save as much as possible.
