The United Kingdom Singapore Law Students Society (UKSLSS) is a student-run society that works closely with the Singapore Legal Service Commission with your interests at heart. We provide the link between the legal fraternity in Singapore and the law students here in the UK. For this reason, we are the first point of contact in the search for Singapore legal talent in the UK. Apart from this, we also aim to stay relevant by helping our members cope with the rapidly changing legal landscape by keeping them abreast of the developments.
The society regularly organizes various activities with the view to serve its members better. Earlier in the academic calendar we had the pleasure of welcoming, to London, the Honourable Chief Justice Chan Sek Keong and Judge of Appeal V.K Rajah, who shared their thoughts on recent legal developments in Singapore and in particular the strategy for making Singapore a regional law hub. This summer, we will again be bringing you the Singapore Legal Forum. This is a an annual high profile that the society organizes to bring together, our members and prominent members of the profession including judges, civil servants and well known private practitioners. This year amongst other things, we hope to give you a better understanding of what it means to be an in-house lawyer as an alternative career path. At the same time, we will be organising a careers fair which will serve as a point of contact and recruitment for the legal industry in Singapore. Besides the Singapore Legal Forum, we are actively looking at other activities to help you prepare for a career in the legal profession.
To keep you informed, we have started an online newsletter called, the 'UKSLSS Legal Update'. We hope that this newsletter will be a valuable source of information regarding legal developments as well as updates on career prospects in Singapore.
It is my pleasure to serve you in this academic year. I wish you all the best for your studies in the year ahead and I look forward to seeing you soon.
