re: how to work there

one of my LS alumni is working for King & Wood right now. She did this international LLM program for her third year through my school at the University of Singapore - supposedly she networked there and got a job at King & Wood.

She was law review (graduated cum laude) from my school.

FYI, she is white and my school is T2.

HTH (if it does at all).

She's working there as a foreign legal consultant (i think). I'm not sure about King & Wood specifically, but for firms in other asian countries, if you want to work as an FLC, you just need to pass the bar in the States.

I'm not sure what they pay. I don't personally know the person so I can't say more.

google - seems like the firm pays new york associates USD 40 per hour.
not biglaw salary.

the pay is likely lower elsewhere - a lot of firms do not pay uniform salaries in all offices.

why would you want to work there?
