Singapore In-House Legal Counsel Pro Bono Guide
Given their legal training, wealth of experience and diverse skill sets, in-house counsel are a valuable resource in the area of pro bono. However, while many in-house counsel are eager to use their legal knowledge and skills to give back to the community, they may be unsure of the scope of work which they are allowed to undertake, as well as the opportunities available to them.
The Singapore In-House Counsel Pro Bono Guide, produced jointly by Law Society's Pro Bono Services Office and DLA Piper, serves as a useful reference for in-house counsel by providing a roadmap on establishing and managing in-house pro bono projects as well as highlighting various volunteer opportunities available to them. DLA Piper and Law Society are delighted to partner with Singapore Corporate Counsel Association (SCCA) to raise awareness of the Guide and to engage SCCA's network of in-house counsel.
The Guide was launched on 29 January 2016 by DLA Piper, The Law Society's Pro Bono Services Office and SCCA.
The Guide is available for download HERE.
