Pro Bono SG, formerly known as Law Society Pro Bono Services, aims to create a Singapore where no one would be barred from justice. We bridge access to justice gaps by empowering the least, the last and the lost in law through legal awareness, guidance and representation. Pro Bono SG is a Singapore-registered charity with an Institution of a Public Character (IPC) status that helps over 17,000 underprivileged individuals and community organizations per year receive legal help with the contributions of lawyers, volunteers and supporters.Our Criminal Legal Aid Scheme (CLAS) ensures that impecunious accused persons facing non-capital charges have access to justice, and receive the help, guidance and assurance they need to face the criminal justice system.
In January 2020, Pro Bono SG and SUSS signed an MOU to jointly launch a clerkship programme at the CLAS office for students of the SUSS School of Law, to allow the SUSS Law Programmes students to gain experiential knowledge of criminal legal practice.
