“Get Future Ready” Package Provides S$2.6 Million In Support For Lawyers
Singapore Academy of Law (“SAL”) members will get additional help totalling $$2.6 million in the form of free online courses, access to digital publications, and waiver of subscriptions to LawNet, Singapore’s most-used legal research site.
The latest support package, which was disbursed from 16 August, is the fourth that SAL has rolled out since the start of Covid-19. Since 2020, SAL has pledged a total of $6.8 million to support members, including the $2.6 million sum announced today.
“Get Future Ready” Programme
Termed the “Get Future Ready” programme, the latest package is designed to equip members with learning and development resources to help them emerge stronger in a COVID-19 endemic world. Said Mr Rama Tiwari, Chief Executive of SAL, “We have been hard at work re-imagining the tools and resources required by our members to emerge stronger. Members demand greater digitisation of legal resources and learning tools. They also demand greater regional legal resources to allow them to access and understand markets beyond Singapore. Over the course of the next few months we will be rolling out online legal tools and resources to help members emerge stronger.” (continued)
