High taxes and costs, bloated bureaucracies and cultural differences in some of these Asia-Pacific nations present formidable challenges for the Hong Kong financial institutions to relocate even partially, while Singapore’s similarities to Hong Kong give it an advantage, they said, though the South-east Asian city-state has not actively been seeking such business.

Beijing imposed a tough national security law from July 1 on Hong Kong, regional home to many global financial groups, prompting companies to reassess their operations there.

Unless you’re a freegan and have found a way to live entirely off the grid, you probably need some sort of steady income in order to survive.

2 Law School Personal Statements That Succeeded | Top Law Schools

frank lamjus

Deciding what to say in the law school personal statement is the most challenging part of the admissions process for some applicants.

“Even people who are good writers often have a hard time writing about themselves,” says Jessica Pishko, a former admissions consultant and writing tutor at Accepted, a Los Angeles-based admissions consulting firm. “That is perfectly normal.”

Pishko, who coached law school applicants on how to overcome writer’s block, says, “If you can find the thing that you really care about, that is who you are, and talking about that is a great way to write about yourself.”
