The Law Society of Singapore
The Law Society of Singapore is the representative body for lawyers in Singapore, and sets out the rules of professional conduct for lawyers. The Law Society’s mission is to serve its members and the community by sustaining a competent and independent Bar which upholds the rule of law and ensures access to justice.
To further this mission of ensuring access to justice in Singapore, the Law Society of Singapore runs the Pro Bono Services Office, which has implemented various initiatives to bring free legal aid to those in need. These initiatives include the Criminal Legal Aid Scheme, which provides criminal legal assistance to the poor and needy in non-capital charges, as well as the Community Legal Clinic scheme that provides legal advice on a variety of legal issues. At the community level, the Pro Bono Services Office also supports Law Awareness, a public education initiative to raise public awareness of the law via public education seminars, exhibitions and through the publication of educational information.
