The Ministry of Law has responded to my letter on the Committee To Review Legal Services Sector.
REPLY FROM PERMANENT SECRETARY, MINISTRY OF LAW, SINGAPORE ON 22 AUGUST 2006
The Committee le[d] by Justice V K Rajah has formed several working groups to look into various aspects of the legal services sector, and it intends to consult widely. The different stakeholders which you have highlighted will be involved either as members of the working groups or as part of the consultation process.
In particular, I understand that committee members of the SCCA [Singapore Corporate Counsel Association] will be invited to join the working groups. Justice Rajah also plans to meet with the leadership of the SCCA personally to hear the concerns and ideas from SCCA.
The Committee also welcomes views from general members of the public, particularly members of the legal fraternity, on how the legal services sector can be taken to the next level.
