I would go with Singapore.
Really Manchester isn't much better than Singapore, and some might say worst.
Also the fees and cost of living in the UK are a lot higher than in Singapore.
Wherever you may go, remember that chances of staying in either UK or Singapore are slim at best. You should look at the degree that works best in your home market. In the UK especially, there is an enormous glut of local lawyers, and they hold an advantage over you because employers don't have to deal with visa issues.

I concur.

There should be a need to gain recognition from within thy native country before daring a risky endeavour. Both Singapore and UK markets are excessively glutted. Why would anyone waste money/time pursuing a LLM outside thy native country without practical experience?

[Note] From reading through majority of the rhetoric up on this website, I have recognised a lack of critical thinking skills from people who have a law degree and consider pursuing a LLM.

There are reasons to get a foreign LLM. So I wouldn't be a total debbie downer.

I have a foreign LLM myself for two reasons. First, I was able to get access to some of the world's top legal minds, something that was not possible in my home country.

Second, a LLM is a necessary pre-requisite for a PhD and the PhD is the basic entry requirement for academia, at least in the Commonwealth Countries that is not the US.

I also do not have practical experience. Neither do I intend to get some, since my route is purely academic.

My advice was basically think carefully what you want given the current market climate in both England and Singapore. Not that its stupid to do a LLM regardless of circumstances.

How do you intend to join any corporate company without practical experience? BTW, I constantly research the global economy's agorithm. Albeit It does not matter what country I come from.

Good luck in the UK.
