    In the past two years, Slorach has been consulted by the SILE on projects involving the review of selected programmes in the SILE’s Bar admissions course as well as the development and provision of bespoke training for lawyers and learning providers as part of the SILE’s continuing professional development (‘CPD’) scheme.

    SILE is responsible for maintaining and improving the standards of legal education in Singapore, making recommendations to the appropriate authorities on the training and education required for the qualification of legal practitioners in the region.  It has responsibility for the implementation of initiatives, programmes and curricula relating to legal education from diploma, undergraduate and postgraduate programmes through to CPD once solicitors are qualified.

    Scott Slorach, Vice President (Education), The University of Law said: “It is a huge honour to be appointed to the role of visiting professor. SILE is developing a number of legal education initiatives aligned to the growth of the jurisdiction as an international hub for legal services, and to be a part of that at this time is very exciting.

    “The University of Law prides itself in being at the forefront of legal education innovation, offering a wide range of domestic and international programmes.  As such, being able to work closely with SILE as they develop Singapore’s vocational training and CPD is incredibly rewarding and I look forward to continuing our partnership as the legal profession becomes much more globalised and aligned across jurisdictions around the world.”
