How much does a fresh law graduate earn in Singapore?

So how much does a new lawyer earn in Singapore?
And the difference in pay or salary between graduating from the law schools of NUS and SMU?

According to MOE's employment survey results released in 2014:

National University of Singapore (NUS) Faculty of Law
Bachelor of Laws (LLB) (Hons)
Full-term perm employment: 98.2%
Basic Mean: $4,922
Gross Mean: $5,099
25th percentile: $4,500
75th percentile: $5,800

Singapore Management University (SMU) School of Law
Law (4-year programme)
Full-term perm employment: 100%
Basic Mean: $5,023
Gross Mean: $5,246
25th percentile: $4,500
75th percentile: $6,000

Cum Laude and above
Full-term perm employment: 100%
Basic Mean: $5,329
Gross Mean: $5,617
25th percentile: $4,750
75th percentile: $6,400



Data on law graduates are obtained from a follow-up survey on 2012 graduates after they have completed their 1-year practical law course/pupillage. 

The Ministry of Education (MOE) publishes the results of key employment indicators of the survey to provide prospective students with timely and comparable data to assist them in making informed course decisions. 15,365 graduates from the three publicly-funded universities were surveyed and the overall response rate obtained was 72%. MOE has taken all reasonable steps to ensure the accuracy of the data but is not liable for any inaccuracies. Students should make use of the data below at their own discretion.
