Mr Azman Jaafar, Deputy Managing Partner and one of the founding members of RHTLaw Taylor Wessing, presented the Witness Orientation Project with the 2018 RHTLaw Taylor Wessing Subhas Anandan Pro Bono Award at the 3rd annual National University of Singapore (NUS) Law Pro Bono Awards Ceremony. The event was held at NUS campus on Thursday, 12 April 2018.
The RHTLaw Taylor Wessing Subhas Anandan Pro Bono Award is a tribute to the legacy of our late Senior Partner, Mr Subhas Anandan, who was a prominent criminal lawyer in Singapore and a champion of pro bono work. Launched in 2016, the award affirms RHTLaw Taylor Wessing’s commitment to inspire and encourage NUS Law students to deepen their involvement in spearheading pro bono projects in areas that they are passionate about. The award provides S$25,000 over five years to deserving pro bono projects initiated by NUS Law students.
The NUS Law Pro Bono Awards Ceremony is organised by the NUS Faculty of Law to recognise students for their outstanding leadership and contribution in pro bono projects, and to award financial grants to deserving pro bono projects.
