How to get into it?

You can continue staying where you are and being miserable, and justify not applying by reference to your subjective measurement of country perceptions, or actually go out and read the actual news that law firms in NY and London are _desperate_ for laterals right now, and go out and apply.

Even if you think in normal times people discriminate against Singaporeans when hiring, now's the chance to shoot your shot so go for it man.

It isn't a race thing as people seem to be interpreting wrongly. No wonder Singaporeans keep racializing all issues.

It is mostly a country thing. There's a pecking order of countries from which candidates are preferred, and a candidate from an advanced First World / OECD economy would always be preferred over a non OECD economy from the global south. It so happens that the aforesaid countries are historically, and remain presently, majority white countries.

Canada and Australia have better claims than Singapore of being a First World advanced economy.

Again, it is not a race thing. An average British-born-Indian grad will be perceived as a preferred hire in a US/UK firm over an average India-born-Indian grad. Same with Chinese - An Australian-born-Chinese grad will be a preferred hire over a Singapore-Chinese or HK-Chinese grad.

We r talking about working in the HQs of major international law firms in NY and London. We're not talking about working in their outposts in Asia, where of course they're prepared to hire lots of local lawyers from whatever jurisdiction they set up shop in.

Drew is still 5.6 for NQ. But we got the fruit basket, so we're arguably the best comped.
