Hello there!

Are you a student interested to read law? Are you a law student confused as to how to get admitted to the Singapore Bar? Are you a trainee at a big 4 looking to switch fields?

A little more about me: I did my LLB in London and am admitted to the Singapore Bar. I practiced law in Big 4 firm in Singapore for a number of years, and am now working as legal counsel to an MNC based in Singapore.

Just to kick things off, this will be the process to get admitted to the Singapore Bar, assuming you graduated from a UK university. Note that this is the latest timeline as of April 2017.
  1. Graduate from Uni (July - August)
  2. Relevant Legal Training (6 months - August to January)
  3. Part A (5 months - February to June)
  4. Part B (6 months - July to December)
  5. Training Contract (6 months - January to June)
  6. Called to the bar in August (whole process from graduation should take about 2 years)
