It depends. Some departments have quite a number of legally trained officers. These departments like people who can write well as their officers would have to do a fair bit of it.

I know of a lot of people who went overseas and had fun but still managed to get retained in big fours/int firms, maybe employers like them. Maybe they are got more worldly and street smart from having different experiences. I donít know.

I just feel that no matter how much I study I still canít beat those party goers/wanderlusts. Why is life unfair.
he thinks being good at exams alone will make him a good lawyer

on part b they tell people dont anyhow go overseas, need to be in sg for some classes and things such as call papers. i wanna see how mad you get when the people who go bangkok bali hk every other weekend get distinctions

So did your inferiority complex develop before or after entering law school?

This is difficult to rank because DSC is a outlier. It is not the rest of the Big 4 but training there is surely good or better than B4.

But not many people can take the hours/not sustainable. For some of us there's a degree of self-selection (and preservation lol) so it might be excluded.

He does pay really well though.

In terms of prestige, the best but long hours I hear. Good for the career, bad for all other aspects of life.
