Registration of Practice Training Contracts

A Singapore law practice which provides a practice trainee with supervised training under a practice training contract must register with the Institute every practice training contract and the particulars of the practice trainee and his supervising solicitor.

When registering a practice training contract with the Institute, a Singapore law practice must:

  1. declare to the Institute the number of solicitors in the Singapore law practice who are qualified to be supervising solicitors on the date of commencement of the supervised training under the practice training contract,

  2. confirm that the supervising solicitor complies with requirements set out in Rule 18(1) of the Legal Profession (Admission) Rules 2011, and

  3. in cases where a supervising solicitor takes on 3 or 4 practice trainees, confirm that that particular supervising solicitor is of not less than 12 years’ standing.
