What is the argument on the other side? Only this, that no case has been found in which it has been done before. That argument does not appeal to me in the least. If we never do anything which has not been done before, we shall never get anywhere. The law will stand still whilst the rest of the world goes on; and that will be bad for both.

Singapore Legal Forum 2014: The Legal Revolution?

We are delighted to bring you this year's Singapore Legal Forum. SLF 2014: The Legal Revolution, will take place on 16 August 2014.

In addition to our other efforts to enable and facilitate your networking and familiarisation with the Singapore legal scene, the SLF is a significant platform where we bring together members, interested parties, and Singapore's keenest and finest legal minds.

We are extremely privileged to have for the first time as our Guest-of-Honour, Senior Minister of State, Ministry of Law and Ministry of Education, Indranee Rajah SC. Senior Minister for State will be participating in a closed-door Dialogue with SLF attendees.

Further, we are also pleased to announce that JC Edmund Leow has kindly agreed to grace the event as Chairperson of the Panel Discussion. The Panel Discussion will feature some of Singapore's most prominent and distinguished Partners from the various leading law firms.

Like previous years, the forum will have 3 segments. First, a Panel discussion comprised of Partners from Singapore's top firms, a dialogue with our GOH, and a Careers Fair featuring booths from Singapore's leading law firms. We will also be launching the society's well-regarded annual publication, Lex Loci 2014 at the SLF.

This year, we hope to focus on the key legal highlights and developments that are revolutionising and carving out for us a distinctively Singaporean jurisprudence and practice. Some areas that we hope to discuss include: the transformation of Singapore into a regional arbitration, M&A and IP hub as well as the impact of socio-political developments on the laws of defamation and privacy. Other hot topics include the recent challenge to S377A and the opening of Singapore's 3rd law school.

So whether you want to see a lively discussion on the state of legal affairs, dialogue with our Guest-of-Honour, or get to know more about legal careers through the various firm representatives at the Careers Fair - the SLF will not disappoint. We will also be holding a lunch reception for attendees of the SLF.
