Law Society of Singapore Pro Bono Services
Overview (Program Summary)
ACC Singapore is delighted to be supporting “Just Laugh: Stand Up for Justice” organised by the Law Society Pro Bono Services (LSPBS) for their Virtual Charity Event of 2021, on Friday, 25 June 2021!
Join the Guest of Honour, Mr Edwin Tong, Minister for Culture, Community and Youth and Second Minister for Law, along with representatives and supporters of the legal industry for an evening of:
Annual awards to outstanding volunteers and firms for their sterling contributions to the Pro Bono cause and landscape;
Hidden talented comedic lawyer from the legal industry in the non-professional open mike stand-up segment;
Professional stand-up comedy performances by Singapore’s most talented comedians, Hossan Leong and Pam Oei;
Today, with a staff strength of close to 32, some 12,000 persons are provided critical legal awareness, advice or aid every year. This is only made possible through the unstinting efforts of our 1,700 volunteer lawyers and students, supported by LSPBS, which provides co-ordination, means testing, capacity building, training, and public legal education support.
We believe that these efforts contribute to making Singapore a more compassionate, inclusive and empathetic society. Our aspiration is that our world-class justice system should never leave anyone behind. Our mission is to ensure that no person is left alone and adrift in the justice system.
We invite you to share in an evening celebrating the profession’s incredible community spirit and seek your support through your presence, participation and generous giving. We invite you to donate towards a table or seats - bring your friends and colleagues and donate to this worthy cause. Click HERE to support us!
We look forward to partnering with you. Help us make this event a memorable one!
