Applying For A Practicing Certificate In Singapore

by on February 26, 2010

Yes, we are doubling up on posts addressing procedural issues this week, but we try to write about what’s timely and the regulation of lawyers seems to be the topic of the week.

On March 2, the Singapore Law Society will be holding the second of two seminars addressing the application process and requirements for obtaining a practicing certificate in Singapore.  It may not sound exciting, but it’s one those things that often gets overlooked and can save you a lot of time, hassle and expense in the long run.

From the LSS website:

‘”What Every Lawyer Needs to Know About Applying for a Practising Certificate’ Briefing Session

26 Feb & 2 Mar 2010, 3.00pm-4.30pm, Law Society Conference Room

From 1 March 2010, lawyers may apply for practising certificates for the practice year 2010/2011 commencing 1 April 2010.
