SAL Post-Qualifications Overseas Attachments 2019/2020 

The Singapore Academy of Law Post-Qualification Overseas Attachments, inaugurated in 2011, expose deserving young lawyers to best practices in litigation or arbitration. The programme aims to raise the standard in these areas of practice in Singapore and also allow attachment awardees to serve as role models for other lawyers. Awardees spend up to 12 weeks with leading sets of barristers' chambers in London to gain international experience and exposure and are required to continue working in the Singapore legal industry for a minimum for 18 months in institutions approved by SAL after completing their attachments. They are also expected to take on active roles in SAL programmes after returning from their attachments




The Singapore Academy of Law is offering up to 5 overseas attachments between 10 – 12 weeks to Chambers in London, U.K. for the financial year 1 April 2019 to 31 March 2020. 

Eligibility Criteria: (1) be members of the Singapore Academy of Law and (2) have between 3-10 years of post-qualification work experiences as of 1 January 2019. Applicants with an interest in litigation/ arbitration will be accorded greater consideration, likewise for those who practice in the infrastructure space.
