The Law Society of Singapore and The College of Law have committed to develop and deliver legal education and training programmes to meet the needs of the legal profession in Singapore. This is the first time the Law Society has collaborated with a legal education provider. Usually, the Law Society collaborates with other bar associations. The collaboration with the College will drive thought leadership in legal education policy.
The Law Society and the College will establish a 5-year development plan to prepare members of the legal profession for a future where lawyers require not only deep expertise in specific practice areas but also market knowledge and business skills. Neville Carter, Group Chief Executive Officer of The College of Law, observed that Singapore law was increasingly the governing law in commercial transactions in this region, and there was a growing interest to know more about Singapore law.
