An opinion piece by Managing Partner, Tan Chong Huat, and Head, Professional Services Support, Alvin Chen, was published on 16 September 2014 in The Straits Times’ Opinion Section.
The commentary, entitled “Lawyer glut can be a happy problem”, discusses how the leap in the number of Singaporeans enrolling in overseas law schools raises larger issues, in particular how the legal community should allocate more resources to enhance the practice of community law and why younger citizens should be educated about the role of law in society.
