Singapore lures overseas-trained lawyers back home

February 13, 2009 In a move to attract overseas-trained Singapore lawyers to come back and practise law at home, the Singapore Law Ministry will abolish the one-year-long Diploma in Singapore Law course.

Foreign educated lawyers will be offered an optional three-month conversion course. Measures include revamping the Practice Law Course, replacing the pupillage system with training contracts, and the possibility of making continuing legal education mandatory to ensure practising lawyers are up to date.
