 Who are we?

The Pro Bono Services Office of the Law Society of Singapore is a Charity (Charity Registration No. T07CC2064L) and approved Institution of Public Character (IPC Registration No. IPC 000571). 

 We were established on 10 September 2007 with the mission to help bring free legal assistance to those in need in our community, as part of the Law Society's stated mission – to ensure access to justice for all.

The law is a mystery to the many people; it has procedures and jargon which are often confusing and even intimidating. Many people do not have access to a lawyer, either because of money or an ingrained social resistance to seeing one. As a result, they ask for informal advice from friends, and, in the process often receive inaccurate information with no way of verifying it. Every year, our pro bono programmes provide accurate and relevant legal help to thousands who need it but cannot otherwise afford to access it.

 What do we do?

We run a wide range of programmes and activities that can largely be categorised under:

  1. Law Awareness initiatives such as talks, publications and partnerships with organisations for their members and beneficiaries
  2. Free Legal Clinics for qualifying applicants that run Mondays to Thursdays at the Central, North West, South East and South West Community Development Councils (CDCs); as well as Community, Criminal,  Workers, Family and Civil clinics at the Community Justice Centre (CJC)
  3. Representation for qualifying applicants under the Criminal Legal Aid Scheme (CLAS)
  4. Help for Non-Profit Organisations and Social Enterprises that start with legal clinics and go onto transactional help where necessary.
