New Accreditation scheme for Lawyers

In Singapore, you always have to be upgrading and improving. Even lawyers now need to do so.

2017 sees a new accreditation scheme launched so that it will make it easier for members of the public to identify specialist lawyers in Singapore.

The Specialist Accreditation Scheme has been introduced by the Singapore Academy of Law (SAL) – accredits lawyers who have proven themselves in their area of practice.

The specialist accreditation scheme aims to improve the quality of Singapore’s legal services and the standard of the Bar in general.

“Accreditation will function as a mark of recognition that a particular lawyer in fact, has certain specific skills, expertise and experience. This will both encourage aspiring specialists to deepen their skills and also provide users with a degree of quality assurance,” CJ Menon. 

For a start, the scheme will target lawyers who specialise in building and construction law. SAL said the sector has been identified as a key area in the coming years. SAL said that there are about 900 lawyers practising building and construction law in Singapore.

The accreditation scheme has two tiers – Accredited Specialist for younger legal practitioners and Senior Accredited Specialist for more experienced lawyers – and it is not compulsory. Currently it is only for the building and construction law sector. Lawyers in building and construction sectors who wish to apply must have at least five years’ experience and be selected by a panel of judges. They must also meet criteria such as having substantial involvement in building and construction law practice, as well as references from fellow lawyers. The interviews and selection process are slated to take place between March and September and the first batch of specialist lawyers is expected to be unveiled by January 2018.

It does not say anything about costs of the training or accreditation nor the renewal processes after being accredited. 

It is a good practice in Singapore to be ahead of the curve and take up upgrading before its too late.
