Foreign lawyers?

Postby matt123 » Thu, 13 Jan 2005 7:44 pm

Just finishing off an Australian LLB now and speak fluent Indonesian as well...wondering if anyone could recommend any agencies or law firms re employment in Singapore? I do recall a law firm looking for Australian law grads last year to work there as immigration consultants but can't seem to remember their name now.
I do have some other qualifications as well (Grad Dip International Business and Diploma in Risk Management) but primarily interested in law in Singapore. Any advice?

Most international companies are vrey happy to use Aussie qualified but the qualification is not nearly as important as post qualification experience. I suggest that you focus on what area you are interested in and seek out a job to give you the right experience. If you want an international role or an area with jobs in Singapore then banking and finance would be a good choice however good academics are required so you would have to do well in your finals!
