Undergraduates/JD Students

          ​Undergraduates studying for an LLB programme at the NUS or the SMU or an LLB/B.A. Law/B.A. (Hons) Juris programme at a Scheduled University, and those studying for a JD programme at the SMU or a Scheduled University, and who have successfully completed at least their second year of study, may apply to be interviewed for the possible offer of a “conditional” appointment as an LSO.

2        The candidates who are interviewed may be required to undergo an internship (of at least two weeks) at the Attorney-General’s Chambers/a Legal Service department. Those who perform well at both the interview and the internship may be offered a “conditional” appointment to the Legal Service as an LSO.

4        The candidates whose offer of “conditional” appointment as an LSO is confirmed will be subject to a three-contract framework totalling four years. The said candidates will be appointed on three consecutive contracts comprising two contracts of 18 months each and one contract of 12 months prior to being considered for possible emplacement on the permanent establishment after four years.
