New website dedicated to legal news

There is now a free website that gathers up-to-date news and information on all legal matters.

It is called “Singapore Law Watch” ( and has been developed by the Singapore Academy of Law.

The website is updated every weekday and provides content like headline news relating to the legal practice here. It uses sources like the TODAY newspaper.

It also has updates on new legislation passed. Foreign lawyers can also use the service to stay clued in on changes to Singapore’s legal landscape.

Users can also retrieve the latest content via mobile phone. Singapore Academy of Law members can receive email alerts on breaking news or significant developments that affect the legal profession.

The new website was first announced by Chief Justice Chan Sek Keong when he opened the legal year a few days ago.

Clifford Wong, Assistant Director, Singapore Academy of Law, said: “We feel that there’s a big benefit to small- and medium-sized law firms because it allows them to match their time (faster) by having a look at all these updates in one single place.” – CNA/ms
